I would like some kind of star fish and mulitple shrimp, and a few more fish....jsut don't know what. I am very interested to know what you would do. Thanks!!!

How about a royal gramma? great color, great personality and a great fish. You could also get three blue/green chromis. they add nice movement to your tank.

Pick up a cleaner shrimp and a goby of some sort, their relationship is very entertaining to watch.

Do you mean pistol shrimp and a shrimp goby like the watchman? I don't think cleaner shrimp have relations with gobies other than to clean them. But the cleaners will clean all the fish, not just gobies.

I'm gonna agree that cleaner shrimp are a nice choice for invert. As are peppermint shrimp. Also, brittle or serpent stars are nice, easy and hardy.

Fish though, if your not happy with the tomato clown, how about returning it and picking up a pair of false percs. Clowns are entertaining especially in pairs.
