Question Anybody got some ideas on tankmates for a 5" harlequin tusk and a 3" niger trigger?

Anybody got some ideas on tankmates for a 5" harlequin tusk and a 3" niger trigger? Thinking on a wrasse(thalassoma?) and something else.
Thanks

how about a coris wrasse. We've got one with our niger trigger. They start off the bright red with white stripes when young and look like this when full grown http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j...orisWrasse.jpg

ours we've had for quite a few years (in my brothers tank) and its almost lost all its white stripes and it starting to turn bluer on its tail. (We got it very young)

Thanks guys
What is the scientific name for that coris wrasse?
Any other comments?
I was thinking like either a goldbar wrasse or banana wrasse.

1 niger trigger (check)
1 lunar/banana wrasse
1 freckled hawkfish
