Are you going predator, peaceful, or reef? If money isn't an issue id go with many small rare fish on a reef setup like a blue dot jawfish, flaming prawn goby, some type of mandarin and others like them

Edit* one of my favorites are the zebra barred dartfish..they're best kept in pairs or more and school very nicely

And money is an issue. I don't want to spend more than $45 on a fish.

Amazing as the mandarin goby is they only eat live food so you need lots of live rock with it being 55gal u really have to limit the number of fish or they will starve

What kind of things could I add with my mandarin? Like some corals like bubble coral. I would want an anemone but not my #1 want.

Mandarins aren't that expensive. They're like $20 around my area. Just remember they can be very picky eaters
