Recommended Fish for a beginner

Can anyone give me any advice on what would be the best type of small fish to start out with in my tank. I already have a clarks anemone and am looking to add more but am unsure of what would be a good choice. My tank is 26 gallon's and with only the one fish in it it looks a bit empty

Thanks

Neon goby. Firefish. Blennies - the 2 - 3" versions maybe? Orchid dottyback.

look at a Royal Gramma or a Yellow Watchman Goby. Great color and cool fish.

royal gramma's are indeed vivid fish, with a decent personality, and the top out at about 3".
