Unique inverts & nano fish

I've got a 20 long reef that's been set up about 4 months now. I only have a bicolor blenny and a yellow rose goby at the moment (plus basic CUC), but I'm really into weird inverts and tiny fish! -oh, I do have a coco worm.
Here's my list of ideas, help me add to it!
-pistol shrimp
-sexy anemone shrimp
-porcelain crab
-Pom Pom crab
-lettuce sea slug
-yellow stripe Cardinal
-yellow watchman goby
-green war paint goby (second try? Had one and loved it, but it didn't eat, then died).
-Pygmy filefish
-Tanaka's Pygmy wrasse

Not going to be able to have more than 3-4 small fish in a 20 gal. I've got a 29 gal biocube and trust me any more than that will get ugly.

Yes, I should have clarified I don't want ALL those things, just trying to narrow it down to my favorites

Why stay away from the sea slug? Max size is 3"

That would make sense :/ if you didn't have enough algae. Maybe not on that one.

Maybe a squat lobster to go with your coco worm

I would suggest that you start a live phytoplankton culture. If you do that then you can keep an electric blue flame scallop. They are sweet, just look for them as small as you can since they don't have very long life spans. The phytoplankton would also give you a better chance of keeping your coco worm alive.

I wouldn't try to keep a difficult critter like a flame scallop of any type along with a coco worm. They will be consuming the same food source out of a small water column. The bought foods for this are all phosphates and can easily nuke the tank parameter wise and can kill such sensitive creatures. This ended up being the downfall of the coco worm in my tank when I had to work 6 days a week for several months, conditions worsened and it died off approaching it's second year in my tank.
I have since replaced it with a flame scallop, non-electric variety sadly.
