10 gallon stocking?

i am thinking of upgrading my 2 gallon to a 10 gallon. what would my stocking ideas be? i want really colorful fish! and i will eventually add corals so the fish must be reef safe.

thanks,
joma

I like them too but they are best kept alone because they tend to be agressive towards other tankmates

3 fish in a 10 gallon tank is a little over stocked 1 fish would probably be the best route

If you do go with the 10 gallon I would do 1 clownfish, 2 hemits, and 1 sand sifting snail that's what I would do.... Are you going for a nano reef feel?
