The next most peaceful would probably be the Gramma or Midas (According to LA).

If you go with the Goby/Shrimp pair, I wouldn't get any of the other shrimp on the list. I say this because we think that carey's pistol shrimp has been killing her other shrimp.

Yep, I think everything should get along, lol!

Also, this is kind of random, but I think it is important to say. Some corals like zoos have, emit toxins that can be deadly. It isn't just zoas either. I just recently learned this, and I have been doing SW since 2007, so I wanted to pass it on.

Yes i know they are very agressive but the michaels, tiger, and randallis (sp) are not agressive from what i have heard and read... The randallis is very small so i dont think it can do much harm. Thanks for the input, we hve been on the edge about wether we should get it..

That's great that there are non-aggressive types too, I learn something new everyday!

Glad I could be of assistance!

Here is an article I found on them:
Handling Zoanthids - Some Zoanthids Produce a Deadly Toxin

I wish it was just zoas, and not other corals too.
