Need Fish Ideas For Reef Tank

So im planning my stock list for my 25gallon reef tank and need an idea for one last fish, would like something that is Red with a larger body shape. I LOVE flame angels but have decided I would rather have a reef tank then a FOWLR so I need some ideas.

25 gallons/45lb's of Live Rock

Royal Gramma Bassenet
Yellow Watchman or Midas Blenny
2x Clowns
2x Blood Red Fire Shrimp
Few Dwarf Hermits (not sure how many I need)
Need Ideas for snails that will clean my sand
Star Fish down the road when I have algae for it to feed on.

Liveaquaria.com's compadability chart says that the Damsel would be safe to have with all the other fish I want. are you sure they are that aggressive?

Well the problem with your request is that there are a lot of fish that fill that request. Also to look at fish there are lots of websites, one is thatpetplace.com. You should look at fish in the cardinal fish, wrasses, damselfish, hawkfish, dottybacks, gobies, and yes there are a few of these fish on the website that i gave.

Damsels are ok when small but in a few months they get very very aggressive and think they own the whole tank. You might find something here you likehttp://www.livingreefs.com/species-database-f56.html

Looks good but they are all semi aggressive and the damsel is full blown aggressive. It will take over the tank.
