That is a great idea. I bet you could find some other critters with a lot of personality and color!
You might want to take a peek here, for some ideas, I know it is the nano section, but some of those guys are really cool:

pods

Scooter Blennys main food source is pods, same as mandarin. They are in the dragonet family.

If you have a fish that consumes pods as a mandarin and scooter, it will wipe out the pod population if you do not have a refigium for them to safetly reproduce.

amphipods look like little insects running around the rock. sometimes you'll see them during day but at night they really come out. Use flash light after tank is dark. Copepods are smaller and they will be swimming.

Any time you add a new fish, your going to see some attitude from the current fish. I have 2 yellow tail damsels and they are the last in the pecking order. The clown and the Royal Gramma keep them at bay. My Yellow watchman has no issues with them and my Mandarin did not either. It is best to add a new fish with the lights off or maybe just actinics. This lets them sneak in so to speak.

I would try it a few days and see what happens. Getting a fish out is sometimes not easy to do. I don't really like my damsels but they do swim a lot and seem to make the other fish swim too.
