How big is your tank? A large tang would be nice for adding some flare. Or maybe another species of wrasse

That's a little to small to comfortably house a harlequin tusk. They get rather large both in length and width. Also like little spaceships. Maybe a smaller species of hog fish would work for you, like a red or yellow candy cane. But that judgment call is up to you.

That sounds good for a tusk.
