Royal gramma, firefish, gobies, dottyback/pseudochromis, etc. If you like clowns but want to be different, look for a black percula.

Gobies have quite the personality. Great for small tanks. Add a skunk shrimp too. Very cool to watch and easy to care for.

pistol/goby pair, firefish, basslet and a cleaner. if you are not going to put shrimp in your tank the flame hawkfish is a awesome fish. great personality.

Do you know what you want as far as personality, color, fast-moving, schooling, etc? Personally, I enjoy interesting behavior ("personality"). I think bicolor blennies are pretty entertaining. I like just about all gobies for the same reason.
