Clown fish are always a good beginner choice in SW and they're rather inexpensive as far as SW fish go. There's a Petco in the next town from me and they have a good (small) selection of SW fish and they're all on the beginner side. Most of the fish are about $16 and look happy and healthy. They keep their tanks really clean.

That is a pretty open-ended question considering the multitude of small fish available.

I prefer region specific so here's a couple;

Indonesia:
x2 Amphiprion clarkii, Clark's clownfish
x4 Sphaeramia nematoptera, Pajama cardinal
x2 Ecsenius stigmatura, Tail spot blenny
x1 Nemateleotris decora, Purple firefish

Atlantic:
x4 Serranus tortugarum, Chalk bass
x2 Apogon maculatus, Flame cardinalfish
x1 Centropyge argi, Cherub angelfish or Centropyge
aurantonotus, Flameback angelfish
x1
Opistognathus aurifrons, Yellowhead jawfish or Opistognathus rosenblatti, Blue spot jawfish
