I caught this mediterranean rainbow wrasse in Albania and I think it'd be an awesome fish to keep in the tank, but it's not really traded in the hobby. What're some other fish, corals, or invertebrates you think would be suitable

That thing is beautiful! I’d personally like to see more estuarine species. They’re usually somewhat dull in color but are so much hardier than the fancy stuff, it’d cut down on excess mortality for fishes in this hobby if they became more popular

Which ones specifically? I'm not familiar with many estuarine species
