A friend for my clownfish

I have a 50Litre tank, with two percula clownfish a coral banded shrimp and some hermit crabs. I wanted to get a friend for the clownfish, I would love a fish with lots of personality!

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Royal gramma would be the best choice i think.

lando gave some good suggestions. The basslet and firefish will tend to hang out in one spot. The wrasse will stay on the go.

50 litre tank is about 13 gallon tank right. or did you mean 50 gallon. 50 litre tank would be too small for a puffer. By the way, Welcome to AA

50 litre is way to small for a puffer. I meant WAY! to small. Here are several fish you could pick from: http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/s...fm?pCatId=2124 Most of these are fine but feel free to ask specifically. For example the catalina goby is one to pass on. Thought you might pick it

I actually saw a four line wrasse at my LFS. She has a six line also, but the four line was very active and had more color...

I think a small purple firefish would be a good choice.
