I think another fish or two would be fine, within reason of course.

I would skip the butterfly entirely, no matter which you get I bet you will have issues.

wrasses are a great choice though, I would look into the fairy wrasses, they are reef safe and very very colorful.

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

Thanks, but I already have a carpenter flasher wrasse. Do you happen to know any colorful fish, possibly blue, that could be considered a show fish? Or just any of your favorite fish?

Hmm blue show fish would be hard to come by. If you like the blue you can go smaller and get a few blue reef chromis. Very blue and very active. Thats about all I can think of, sorry.

I like the odd fish, things that you dont see that often. I have a blue lined rabbitfish for instance, very cool fish but you have a foxface already so thats out.
I'm trying to think what fish are active enough to draw your eye to them, hmmm, how about a midas blenny? Not a huge fish but very active and is a really nice yellow.
And I always recommend a hawkfish, I currently have five amongst my tanks. Not a super active fish but they have some severe personality, one of my favorite fish to keep.
I'm also thinking maybe a goatfish or some type of hogfish. I will take a look and see if any are reefsafe, I know the coral hogfish I have will eat inverts.

Haha, and algae scrubber isn't something you use to scrape off algae. You grow nuisance algae in a container so that it doesn't grow in your tank.

Why thank you! I learn new things everyday and look forward to the time that I can actually assist someone in their time of need. As of today, I now know what an algae scrubber is
