    How big is your tank? in the tangs you have the black tang (rare) or the yellow tang, or perhaps a lemon peel angel or a midnight angel (both centropyge so not too big) blue devil damsels (maybe a bit psycho though) yellow clown goby, or an orchid dottyback

    Nope, Chromis belong to the Damsel family. But they are however one of the peaceful species of Damsels.
