Any of these are good.
Not many things have that body shape that doesn't grow too large for your current setup.

the easiest solution would be to let your rock continue to cycle in this tank and look for a bigger one.

i do not know of any body types like the angels or tangs. on a plus side you your planing on starting small so just enjoy the smaller tank and appropriate fish. like most of us, knowing what you want or finding what you want becomes a goal to work toward.

If you do decide to go with 6 fish, just make sure you have great equipment, and do frequent water changes. You will be ready to stock in no time!

My fish list would be:

2 clowns, any two just not maroon ones
1 Goby, maybe a Citron or a yellow clown goby
1 Blenny, tailspot or twin spot
1 Pajama Cardinal
1 Firefish

I like the list above also in addition to mine.
Here is a really nice Firefish! A little pricey though.

Firefish are great for smaller, or larger reefs. They don't mix types very well. My purple firefish beat the daylights out of the smaller common firefish.

Did you add them at the same time? Just wondering because someday I might want to do it if it is possible.

Ok, sounds like they are pretty aggressive fish with their own kind.
