Neon dottyback
Flame hawkfish
longnose hawkfish
dwarf angel

These are just a couple of suggestions, I would not add all those fish to a 40g that already has 2 fish.

How old is the tank? If its more than 6-8 months and you are having a good success rate keeping fish alive, you could look at getting some anthias. Beautiful fish..but they require an established tank. Stick w/ the hardier ones like barlets http://www.reef-aquarium.net/175pics/banthias3.jpg, Sunburst, or Pink Squares.

For a FOWLR, how about:
Flame angel
Watchman goby
Sm Mimic tang

This is what I keep in my 90g FOWLR, but this was once a FO tank with the inhabitants present when I converted to a FOWLR:
Adult Imperator angel
Adult Annularis angel
Juv. Koran angel
Juv. Blue angel
Adult Majestic angel
Sohal tang
Blonde Naso tang
Hippo tang
Harlequin tuskfish
Flame Hawkfish

LOL, it's like the wild, wild west in there! All kidding aside, they all get along pretty well but I do not recommend this setup for anyone. They will outgrow the tank or stay stunted in growth. These guys were a result of "just one more" when the tank was a FO with dead coral decorations.

Stick with the dwarf angels. Flame angels are beautiful and African flamebacks stay small, are brillant in color.
