Looking for a show piece fish for my size tank. I know I'd be cutting it close with some tangs and generally most would grow way too big for my tank, so what other options do I have for a show fish? Welcome any reef safe suggestions!

Those aren't always reef safe.

You didn't say what you have in their currently, is it empty?

I've got a pair of clowns in my 58.

Well I'm upgrading tanks to a 60g from my 24 and all I really have in my 24 is a pair of maroons and a scooter so I'm looking to get a nice fish to show off. Debating between a tang that is suitable for a 60 like a blue or yellow tang, or a niger trigger. Anyone have experiences with triggers in a reef tank? I know they eat inverts

Trigger are not quite safe. The odonus is the one that get closer, but not that beautiful. Wrasses are fine, and pseudochromis either, like fridmani.
