Looking for a peaceful fishes. any suggestions?

You have too many fish as is. I would take out the yellow tang and get a Kole eye or tomini tange, though.

Both those fish depending on the one you choose need 70g to 125g. 

 

Your tank is too small for a tang, foxface, or butterfly

Seriously, though. Tomini tang is active and stays small. The yellow tang has a huge bioload and get s really big. The tomini will stay somewhat small, have a lower bioload, and will be just as active.
