Ideas for small saltwater tank

I've never owned saltwater tank before but I was considering setting up a small one. What would my options be in a 10-20 gallon tank? I'd like coral but I know it's more work than live rock; what I'm really concerned about is my fish options.

I'm not one to pick a fish just because it looks pretty, I like fish with personality. So, what are my options?

Check out liveaquaria.com. They have a nano section with good ideas in terms of fish for smaller tanks.

Clownfish certainly have personality. Ocellaris clowns are the smallest, easiest, cutest, and have the most personality in my opinion. A pair would do great in a 20 gallon.

Blennies tend to have some great personalities as well. Stay away from cardinal fish, they are boring as heck IMO.
