clown fish would be a classic example. Also, there are tons of fish that are reef safe such as gobies, blennies for a 10 gal. Check out liveaquaria.com

You could do two tiny fish as long as you keep up on weekly water changes. I wouldn't do a clown though, they're messy and get 3". Look into gobies, small blennies and cool inverts

They build nests in sps coral. Is this your first reef? I wouldn't attempt sps for quite a while if it is anyway.

+1. I would let your tank mature for at least 6 months to a year before adding sps. Since this is your first reef I would look at softies and some easy lps ( frogspawn and hammers are pretty hardy) and clown gobies do great in those tanks, mine perches in between 2 heads on my frogspawn. You can also look into doing a prawn goby/pistol shrimp pair, that makes a cool 10g center piece IMO

For my 15g I got a tailspot Blenny and clown goby, both stay small and are active in the tank.
