Compatibility with Sea Slugs and Stocking Question

Yesterday I posted about the mysterious death of my goatfish and sea slug. (You can read about it here ). Moving forward, I want to get another sea slug because they are very cool to look at. However, I want to make sure that whatever other fish I stock won't eat it.

Right now I have a Coral Beauty, Diamond Goby, Turbo Snail, and 2 Margarita Snails in my 30g FOWLR tank. What types of fish are going to be good for a 30g, play nice with my other stock, and not eat a sea slug?

I really like colorful and active fish and would prefer something that doesn't have any strange dietary needs (I currently feed mysis shrimp and a pellet food that my LFS suggested).

Any fish who is listed as reef safe, will be fine. Anything listed as picking or eating inverts would be a no no. If you find something you like, let us know to double check.

Also, my sea slug knowledge is admittedly small, but there is a lingering memory that when they die they release a toxin into the tank? Something to double check on when you get your particular species. I could be a total liar.
