I'm going the gramma route instead of the dotty - a little less aggressive generally, but similar in terms of coloration.
As for the clowns, I'm definitely going to add one eventually, just need to suss out which one. My wife really has a thing for tomato clowns which, personally, I dislike the look of. I am a traditionalist with my clowns: I like ocellaris, but wouldn't be against either a maroon or a black ocie.
It's challenging to do this part - so many of the fish I like are iether not reef safe, or just get too darn big. I love yellow tangs, but I know better. I love blue tangs, but DEFINITELY know better. I love butterflies, but I've been there and done that.
Doing my best to be as smart as possible because any time livestock is lost, I see the lost dollar signs in my wife's eyes (not to mention I get bummed out any time something doesn't make it)
