Lightbulb Suggestions for next fish?



I currently have a 55 gallon set up, its been up and going 3 1/2 months and currently houses 1 orange diamond goby, 9 hermits, 4 turbo snails, and a cleaner shrimp. All of my parameters are good as far as the water goes.

I had 2 clownfish, and they didn't show signs of ich and ate like pigs, but weren't very active- and then kicked the bucket. I have since then set up a quarantine tank and will be using it from now on (learned my lesson).

I want to get a fish that will be a fun one to watch. I love my goby and while watching him excavating 'his' tank is fun, I would like to have one that is an active swimmer.

I do want another pair of clownfish at some point, but I was wondering what other fish would be a good fit for right now? What do you have that is your 'pretty' swimmer fish?

Are you a reef setup or FOWLR? If fish only are you intending on getting corals anytime soon? that will dictate some of the fish you can get.

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

How about a reef safe wrasse? Or maybe some chromis? Could do an anthias in there too. Very colorful fish.

theres so many more to choose from, more people will chime in
