What kind of blenny?

I have a 58 gallon oceanic tank with a yellow tang, orange shoulder and 2 clowns, I would like to add a blenny, eventually would like to get some corals too, any advice would be great...thanks

IMO, your tank already has enough (too much really) fish in it. It is generally accepted that tangs require a tank length of 4ft minimum, I can see the yellow doing OK in a smaller tank, but the Orange Shoulder will be very stressed in such a small tank, as it grows. If it were me, I would return the tangs and go with a dwarf angel and then you could add a lawnmower blenny, a bicolor, a midas blenny, a red lipped blenny or one of the many blenny species out there.
