Foxface is a little too small for that tank, especially if it's anything approaching adult size.

Pyramid butterfly would be a good option for a larger fish that's good in that tank size, most of the Ctenochaetus tangs would also be a fit. Both also have utility for the tank - the tangs will help control algae, and some pyramids will eat aiptasia (mine does).

There are also any number of fairy or flasher wrasses that would be a good fit for your tank. A melanarus wrasse would also be good, though they can sometimes get a bit aggressive towards CUC.

I politely disagree. They can be okay in a tank that size.
I politely disagree with your disagreement. :) They probably would be OK, but I personally think they get a bit too big to really be comfortable in a 4-foot tank.

Ultimately it's a personal choice here. I wouldn't do it, but I also wouldn't disparage someone who did, if that makes sense.

Won’t that be too big for a tank like this?
I believe it will be too big in a 75g. Yellow Tangs will do better in 100g+. Foxface Lo need 125g+

You could do a Foxface Siganus unimaculatus...but I wouldn't add anymore fish if you added it

What kind and size is your filtration? Depending on what you have, you may be topping out soon.

You currently have the following:

2 - black and white ocellaris clowns
1 - purple fire fish
1 - yellow watchmen goby
1 - male lyretail anthias
1 - scooter blenny
1 - long nose hawk fish
1 - lame angel
1- Midas blenny
4 - 2 bar chromis

I have a baby fox. Made a deal with the lfs to be able to rehome and trade in for credit and/or a baby when the fox out grown my 75 gallon. The fox is so good on my cuc that i see i never want my tank to go without one.
