Fox face!!! IMO every reef that's big enough should have one. Mine is the life of the party!

Fire fish would look great.

Definitely need a larger fish in there as a focus fish. Options:

Tomini Tang
Yellow eye kole tang
Foxface (with caution)
Flame angel
Regal tang
Midas Blenny

If you do firefish, do 2-3. They are great fish to watch in a group.

I had a pair of fire fish in my biocube 29 and they were bullied by the still present 4 year old perc and they hid 98%of the time as a result,
Fox fave and kole tangs have been at the top of my list for a while a wel as flame. But worried about the flame and fox face munching on my coral.

Midas blennies are awesome. I loved the two that I had but they both jumped the tank. So I'd be wary of that. The kole or tomini would be great choices. I currently have a seveal year old tomini and he is very neat. He is almost always out and about and the first fish to get to the algae clip when I clip a piece on. LOL he has great bright golden color on his back fins and is really a nice fish.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
