Stocking suggestions

I just bought a 29g biocube and it will be ready to stock in approx. 2 weeks. I am wondering what suggestions you all might have for a stock list. It is reef with half and half 36w CF at 14k. I like little guys so I am hoping to stock about 4 fish with shrimp and other critters.
I appreciate your help.

I would get a pair of clowns (occy or perc), a fire fish and maybe a six line wrasse. Possibly a dwarf angel instead of the wrasse.

A pair of clownfish always look good, but its really up to you. If u go to liveaquaria.com click on marine fish, then on nano fish and it will give you the diff types of fish that will fit your biocube. I have an orange spotted watchman goby, they are fun to watch and they keep your sand clean. Good luck.

Are dwarf angels reef safe? I really like the dwarf Coral Beauty, but I heard they can be aggressive. I was thinking about some shrimp, a crab or two, sanils and about 4 small fish. Will the clowns get too big for the 29?

I had a dwarf half black angel, ate nearly very type of coral I have. Cost me a lot. had to take the tank apart to catch it and relocate to the 30g. I will never try an angel in a reef again. Each fish is individual, but its pretty much a 50/50 risk.
