for small fish.... you could look at possibly some purple firefish...

for a large one.... how large do you want to go???

if anything I would be more looking into a fairywrasse or something.... beautiful looking ones out there

Fairy wrasses need a longer tank.. No "big" fish can fit in a tank that size. You're limited to smaller fish like firefish, gobies, blennies, bassletts, etc

agree a fairy wrasse generally needs a bigger tank... although if the op wants a big fish... the only ones out there that are big and semi reef safe are the fairy wrasses, tangs, angels and rabbitfish.....

out of all those fish and the size of the tank.... the fairy wrasse would be the better choice
