Hi Everyone! Looking for your suggestions for a fish to go into my 15G AIO mixed reef. Please let me know your suggestions and thanks in advance!

Current inhabitants:
- 2 paired juvenile clown fish
- Banded serpent starfish
- Feather Duster
- 40 corals, almost all LPS, with some on the sandbed

Other future planned inhabitants:
- 2 fire or cleaner shrimp
- Maxima Clam

What I'm looking for in a fish:
- Peaceful and non-aggressive
- Relatively hardy and not high-maintenance
- Fun personality and likes to be out and visible (i.e. no cave dwellers)
- Preferably colourful

I would suggest a shrimp goby of some sort or gramma. Yes, grammas are technically cave dwellers in nature, however in aquaria (especially nanos) they couldn't be more bold. Bicolor blenny could also be an option. Most other small fish are far too active to be able to comfortably live in a 15g, so things like possum wrasses or fang blennies are out of the question.
Beautiful tank by the way!

I’d recommend a Pink Streak Wrasse. Mine isn’t anywhere near shy now he’s established. Yes he hangs closer to the rocks but every so often he is out and loving the open water column.

I was thinking about having 2 clowns, and a pink streak wrasse too, but I feel like the clowns could end up being too aggressive

I can’t believe I’m doing this. Recommending a Six line wrasse. Good fit with clowns as long as it’s the only other fish
Honestly, I also agree with this.

Thanks everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I ended up getting a pink streaked wrasse a couple of weeks ago and he’s been great with the clowns. No issues at all and everyone is happy and healthy.

I may still add one more fish in the future as I’m still having to dose nitrates and phosphates.
