30 gal fish suggestions

i have a 30 gal FOWLR tank just being started and i was wondering what people think for fish. i would like:

2 false percs (added first)
a blenny (lawnmower)
a royal gramma

i realize the lawnmower blenny is tricky since it needs a matured tank full of algea to survive so i am on the fence about it, they just seem to have tons of personality.

any suggestion on other fish that would compliment my tank?

i would like to add coral at some point but want to get used to the FOWLR first since this is my first tank.

i am also currently in the process of switching my CC out for sand if that opens up anymore options

Maybe you can see one eat at the LFS. If the LFS feeds the tank and he eats then you should be OK. If not then dont take a chance.

any suggestions on some other lively and personable fish, or some colorful fish?

are you thinking fish in addition to what you have listed above? I'm not sure I'd add any more fish to a 30g. Maybe something very small, but I had a 30g with three fish and it was plenty.
