My Splendid Dottyback is an amazing fish to interact with. Always curious of anything going on in and out of the tank. Peaceful feeder, and not aggressive at all. Super healthy and plump and some of the most beautiful markings.

As much as I hate this fish, I do have a clownfish in a single tank. I can say they are worth the money you invest in them. They are pretty and iconic in their looks. They are active and a great character in a reef, they can be friendly but I recommend adding fish that can tank a few hits from the little buggers, and they are very hardy and easy to keep.

I would say my copperband butterfly fish and my black long nose tang. Both are beautiful. My Mimic tang as well has a great temperment. All 3 are very healthy, active fish, look beautiful. Everyone loves the black long nose tang in person. He's old as well, 7 years old. . .

It's not that cheap, but I love having a blueface angel. To me, it's one of the most beautiful fish, it's active, mine is very healthy, and it hasn't been a jerk in the 3 years it's been in my reef.

Cleaner wrasse definitely ranks up there. Although not as cheap as it used to be, LFS still have these in the $20-30 range. Always active and seeking out other fishes to "clean" in my tank. Difficult to QT since they don't take copper treatment. Once established, a must have member of the utility fish crew.

May seem a silly answer, but If you can manage to get them without uronemia, a group of standard issue $2 green chromis are still one of my absolute favorite must-have fish. Especially if you can manage a decent sized shoal of them. Not much utility in them but they’re fun to watch
Bpb - where can you find any fish for $2
