Blue fish

Hey all. I was trying to think of a good addition for my 55g FOWLR. I currently have 2 ocellaris clowns and 2 green chromis. I wanted to add a pretty blue fish that would be friendly with my current stock and suitable for my 55g. Any suggestions? I originally wanted a blue tang, but my tank is way too small, but then thought of blue damsels, then heard they were evil. Any good blue fish out there? Preferably not too expensive. Thanks!

How about blue reef chromis? Alot different than the regular green/blue little ones and they get kinda big too. About $15 on liveaquaria.

I had 5 for a couple years but through a couple mishaps lost a few here and there til I had just two. lol But yeah, they are really cool, a dark blue with a black streak on top and soo much friendlier than damsels.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh, another thought would be a bicolor pygmy angel, but not sure if you have coral or not. They can be nippers.

This fish looks awesome! Thank you! I can probably get a couple to school with my green chromis!

I love my blue reef chromis they are almost 6" now they pretty much avoid the blue/green chromis as they look like minnows compared to them

Yellow tail damsels are pretty docile compared to other damsels IME. Mine doesn't bother anything, other than occasionally trying to chase away the cleaner shrimp when he comes to his cave.
