Thank you for your thoughts. Is there a specific reason why I should not go with the starfish n crabs?

A Valentini puffer is good but it will eat your shrimp.

Sorry I don't know if your going RO or FOWLR for you are going Reef Only the Chocolate Star fish can destroy or knock over your coral. Your Emerald Crab can sometimes eat on your coral and Coraline algea. IMO all depends on feeding... Crabs all in all can become and issue over time as they can end up catching your Fish sleeping at night and start eating them. Snails are much safer IMO....

Ok I am a FOWLR. I did not realize the crabs could catch the fish. I will have to think on it some more. It is fun but overwhelming also as I have so many different choices with such a small space.....kid in the candy store LOL..... thank you.

do some research on nano community fish.. (fish that do not grow very large).
most goby's (there's a large variety in terms of shape/color/character), clown fish, firefish, some basslets, and your usual assortment of snails, peaceful stars (i.e. serpent stars), various types of non-aggressive shrimp, etc.

Here's a list of some peaceful nano fish to get you started, there are more... but this is a good starting point: Nano Fish

IMO... This Gobie would work out great for your nano if you would want to start anywhere.
