Advice needed on possible new livestock!

Hello everyone! As you all may know I currently have a 72G bowfront stocked with 2 cleaner shrimp, 2 ocellaris clowns, 1 yellow tang, 1 rigilius goby, and several hermits and snails. I would like to add two more fish to my tank before I call it quits on stocking. I wondered if putting in either a Scott's Fairy Wrasse or a Longnose Butterflyfish would be ok followed by a Flame Angel Fish. I have read that a longnose butterfly is somewhat difficult to take care of, but I wanted the expert opinion from this site! I also wondered if anyone would know if a flame angel would be ok with my LR and shrimp/hermits/snails.

I'm a big wrasse fan so you know which I'd suggest.... If you go with the Scott's, be sure to have your tank covered.

I have the plastic grid that you would put in a drop down flourescent light cut to fit the top of my tank, I'm good there!

I was looking at the flame angel myself when I get my tank cycled, gorgeous fish. Hear is a link to live aquaria about our little friend.

What about a blenny. Make sure you see it eat before you get it if you decide that`s what you want.

I thought about a blennie, but was concerned that it and the goby would not get along.

I have two gobies and they get along with my black sailfin blenny.

I was thinking of a bi-color blenny from when I originally planned by stocking list, what about a bi-color and a flame angel to wrap up my stocking?

This is not a reef tank is it. Caution needs to exercised when adding an dwarf angel to the tank. IME

Live Aquaria indicates the fish is reef compatible with caution, exactly what Mike is talking about.
