The shrimps are great at turning over the substrate too, well exept when mine go's on a mental digging mission and makes the water. Cloudy! Gets all the corals out feeding tho!

Gobies are great. And most of them are easy to keep. Angels are also nice, but some of them might not be good in a coral tank. Damsels are territorial, so I would have either a single one, or a small school.

Hopefully the damsel wont become aggressive with future additions. I have a 3 stripe damsel who thinks the tank is his. But dwarf angels are beautiful but if you plan in getting coral they may nip at them. But I would reccomend a pistol shrimp, their fun to watch making tunnels in the sand bed. They may also form a relationship with your goby.

Im sorry to hear. But try a battery powered air pump to keep the tank oxyginated and the surface moving. Hopefully the power comes back soon. Goodluck.
