    Hawaiin Flame Wrasse...frickin awesome fish, only if I did not have a six line in my tank I woulda picked up a pair about a month ago...a tad pricy as the mated pair was $300.

    Flame angel can be good with coral its hit or miss, flame hawk some times can go for shrimp, many different fairy wrasses as mentioned above, depending on your tank size a couple of dispar or lyretail antias would add alotta red and orange.

    As mentioned, depending on your tank size, red saddled anthias are nice mates.

    Here's one of mine. Not red, but an interesting color.
