Stocking help

I have a 55 gallon tank and would like to put a Coral Beauty Angelfish and a Pixy Hawk fish in it. What could I put in the tank with them.

You will want to make sure any additional fish are larger than the Pixy Hawkfish due to their tendency to harass smaller fish... This will make a coral beauty a good pick. Maybe a marine betta or a wrasse of some sort.

I don't really recommend six lines, they're really aggressive IMO/IME.

It depends on the fish really. I had a six line that was very nice and calm. He never bothered anyone. He decided to go carpet surfing though and died. A top on the tank is a good idea with wrasses.

A top on a tank is a good idea almost anytime.
