I would reccomend a Clown Goby. If you go on Liveaquaria.com you can see all of the different kinds. They stay pretty small, and there are many different color variations.

Depending on the density between 8 and 10 lbs is usually pretty good.

Yep, I agree with joy!

Some people say 1lb per gallon others say 1.5 (as a guideline).
