    I have a 100 gallon display tank and 30 gallon sump. Tank has been up for a year now and I really want to add more fish. Looking for some ideas. Here is what I have currently...

    Yellow Tang
    Pair of Clowns
    Pair of Cardinalfish.

    Looking to get more activity in the tank, more coloration to mix in. Open to suggestions.

    Depending on how much of a gamble you’re willing to take with your corals, a dwarf angel would be a good choice for color and movement. A more Reef safe option would be wrasses!!

    I also like anthias or chromis if you’d like a schooling fish. They both add good color and are also busy fish. The only thing is, both require a good amount of feeding.

    Well, you see, I had a sixline wrasse up until about a week ago. Model citizen until one day he just snapped and started being a bully to EVERY FISH. I was able to trap and remove him. Im just really leery of adding a wrasse lol.

    Sixlines have a real reputation as savage little so-and-sos. A far friendlier option would be a flasher wrasse, or many (Most, but not all! Research individual species you're interested in...) of the fairy wrasses. You might also take a look at leopards or a number of species from the genus Halichoeres, such as the "yellow coris" (not a Coris, but _very_ yellow!), radiant or melanurus.

    I've also got to mention the trio of azure damselfish in my tank - tiny darting spots of the most brilliant blue, they constantly bicker and tiff, but only amongst the three of them - and provide the same basic color and intensity as a hippo tang.
