Can I get one more?

So I have a 150 gallon FOWLR. I currently have a Porcupine Puffer (about 6-7"), a Yellow Tang (4-5"), a Fuzzy Dwarf Lion (5-6") and a Dwarf Golden Eel (maybe 10-12"?). I also have assorted snails, cerths, and hermits. I'm thinking about getting 1 more fish. I've been looking a possibly a Wrasse of some sort (I have some fire worms). Do you think I have enough room? I had a 75 gallon before "Sean" (Puffer) got too big and aggressive. I don't want to crowd everyone and have more stress and agressiveness issues.

I think I may have problems with an angel and the tang.

An Angel and Tang will be fine together. A wrasse should be okay too...as far as space goes.

My fear is that when my puffer grows more (he seems to have stopped a bit) he may become aggresive if space is limited. I was thinking wrasse because they seem to stay at the bottom a bit more and the puffer is a top dweller.

I think your lion fish will make a snack of a wrasse. Maybe a dwarf angelfish. A good sized one.

The LFS has a Lunare Wrasse. It's pretty cool looking. Live Aquaria lists it as "agressive," but I have mostly semi-agressive fish. Is this a good fit? Btw, it's a dwarf lion so it's mouth isn't as big, lol.

I have a lunar wrasse in my FOWLR (5x2x2) with a volitan lion, striped puffer, miniatus grouper, and Niger trigger. All get along well and they are all between 5 and 8 inches at this point. The lunar wrasse is very active and aggressive feeder. He was a but aggressive with smaller fish and nipped their fins quite a bit (I had to move a spotted grouper (3-4") to another tank as it got excessive). So with my experience (just mine, not scientific or otherwise), I would recommend that the wrasse is same or a bit smaller in size than the tank mates. Otherwise he is really cool to watch and is quite fast when he ticks off the miniatus grouper.
