Blue fish

Other than a blue tang what's a good blue fish that is reef safe?

There are blue chromis that are really cool. Blue greens, or blue reefs.

I have yellowtail damsels, and they are very peaceful towards my other fish.

I'm a fan of the caribbean tang. Starts yellow, then turns a bright blue, and not nearly as disease prone as a blue hippo tang.

If you don't keep shrimp or crabs, I think you could do a blue hamlet. They are like groupers and tend to kind of laze around until they hunt methodically and suck up small
fish and crustaceans with a slurp.

What size tank? Reef or FOWLR?

Bicolor angel can be difficult to feed. If you don't see it eat, don't purchase it (good rule of thumb for any marine fish IMO).
