Flame angles are colorful - but they seem to be 50/50 on wether they nip a corals or not. I love mine. Clowns are good personality fish as well.

Clowns would be an excellent idea.

If you don't mind paying a little extra money for a better aesthetic look you can get some of the reef safe Wrasses. It will cost more money than a Clown or generally every other fish people usually put in first but they look amazing.

Wrasse Fish for Sale: Cleaner Wrasse and other Reef Safe Wrasse Species - Here is a nice link for your reef safe ones.

Coral beautys are a beautiful fish. Be aware also that they are reef safe with caution. Mine almost wrecked my reef after 4 yrs of good behavior.

that does not excite me to hear. i will watch him closely, thank you for all of your input everyone, any suggesions for feading him. i have some algae established in tank for him to graze, i will also try clipping a small leaf of a marine plant to the wall for him to see if he likes anything. he would not accept flake food which i wasnt surprised, wouldnt accept frozen brine shrimp cubes so i will try also getting some herbivorous cubes and unfreeze them a little too
