Stocking my 55 gallon

I just sold some fish that out grew my tank and want to start over. At the moment I have a Tomato Clown in an anemone and they're doing fine. I'm going to add corals soon but also want a myriad of fish with personality and color. Any ideas?

A pink spotted goby and maybe a wrasse of some type.

I think a Orange Stripe Prawn Goby would be better and idk what wrasse to get. The only thing with gobys and wrasses is that theyre jumpers and I don't have a top.

I also have a 55 gallon with not a lot of fish. So far all I have are a pair of Ocellaris clowns and 3 chromis. Might be getting a dwarf angel.

55 gallon. No top. Six line wrasse is a constant swimmer. Tiger jawfish is cool too. He stays in his burrow constantly spitting sand. Thought he would jump once but that's because I had to move the rock he was under to trap a yellow damsel that had to go. I'll never get another damsel unless I want a fish nugget for dinner.

I haven't had good luck with jumpers my diamond goby jumped out and I woke up to him on the floor. Super sad because I really like him. I like the six line wrasse but I feel like he's to small.

Maybe get a lid? That would open up some possibilities given the bad experience. Smaller fish leave room for more fish. Just a thought.
