Adding New Fish

I finally have my new tank up and running giving me some more room for one more fishy. I currently have full size magnificent foxface, russell lionfish and zebra eel. I would really like to add an active very colourful and tough fishy to the bunch. I was thinking of adding a Harlequin Tuskfish, but I read it only grows to be a max of 4inchs, which puts it on the menu for the lionfish. Any suggestions would be great.

I have thought about a puffer, but I had not seen any with WOW colour. Plus, I have several sea urchins, cucumbers and snails I would perfer not to be on the menu ^^.

As for triggers I would perfer not to take the risk of them snapping off the lionfishies fins.

Thx very much for your info on the Harlequin Tusk. I am going to be looking out for a large Harlequin to add to my tank ^^
