Have you considered any Dartfish yet? Fire gobies look pretty cool

As said before, it will not work in that tank.

How about a small jawfish like this

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Jawfish, Yellowhead

or this

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Jawfish, Dusky

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

Dwarf angelfish need AT LEAST 30+ gallons of space, preferably 40 or larger. And they can nip at corals.

Ya but a cherub is unlikely to nip and is really small.

Why don't you just start over with a 55 gallon tank?

+1 on the 55g tank. Your whole selection of fish would be soo much larger! LOL

i agree.i started with a 65 and it was a great way to get going.my first fish was the coral beauty and it did splendid in that much area.it really does open up alot of possibilities.most people go bigger once the salt bug sets in anyway.
