What about a fairy wrasse? I don't know much about them, but they have a lot of color. How big of a tank do you have?

tank size would be helpful... LR??
wrasses are nice but some eat shrimp so if you want shrimp make sure there shrimp friendly.

it is a 70 gallon with a 30 gallon sump, I plan on initially having 100 pounds of live rock then later maybe get another fifty. I would like to have color with interesting creatures also. like crabs, shrimp

Corals add great color to a tank.

A pair of tank raised false perc clowns (orange), a pair of neon (blue) gobys, 3 (blue/green) chromis, a midas blenny (gold/yellow), (yellow) watchman goby... oops, I'm making this my tank (see my profile).

You gonna do reef, or just fish?
