fish for a 12 gallon

I just put up a 12 gallon saltwater and I'm trying to find fish to put in it. I don't want damsels, they're to aggressive. I'm looking for something with a lot of bright color, maybe red or purple. Right now all thats in it is a white-spotted puffer. Does anyone have any ideas?

I wouldn't add anything else with a puffer in there already. A 12g tank is not big enough for a puffer of any type as far as I know let alone adding another fish. If you decide to return the puffer, then a good choice for that size tank would and fit into your color description would be a firefish.
