I have a 130g tank.
In the tank I have a mix of Corals (LPS/SPS/Softs/Polyps)

The current fish stocking list is as follows:

(2) Percula Clownfish
(1) Tomini Tang
(1) Yellow Coris Wrasse
(1) Randall Goby
(1) Starry Blenny
a few snails/Red Scarlett crabs

I think I am now ready to add more fish to the tank. Just like before, I am running in to compatibility issues with the fish vs coral.

I see plenty of peaceful fish that I want, but most if not all will mess with the corals, or MAY mess with the corals.

I think I have a little room to add more fish that will do perfectly fine, but which ones, is the question.

Can anyone suggest some fish that would fit in this tank without any concern?

fire fish, cardinals, royal gramma are all good reef safe polite fishes.

I've had all those at one point but lost them. Just never went back.

I was eyeballing the fire fish again, I really liked them. They were really small when I got them, and only lasted a few weeks and disappeared in the middle of the night. No carpet surfers, just gone. I assume they were eaten by something.

Guess I shouldn't give up on ones I lost. It's all part of the hobby

This is how I've felt about them. I've tried 2 previously and finally convinced myself to try again last week. Only a week in, but that's longer than the others made it. It's weird how they're supposedly hardy.
