Thanks for the replies.

As far as clown goby's I have not had a good experiences with them not nipping my SPS.

I like the idea of the goby/shrimp idea for something different or the dottyback too.

Any other ideas are welcome.

If you are only keeping one fish, take a look at one of the brighter damsels (no issues if it is the only fish) or dottybacks (especially an orchid or male elongate for example) - no aggression issues with other fish to worry about, easy to feed, beautiful to look at, won't harm coral, etc.

A clownfish or two (smaller species only) would also work of course, as would a royal gramma or yellow assessor...

I have a solitary royal gramma in my biocube 14 filled with live rock and corals. He seems happy enough to make the rockwork his home and his bright purple and yellow color stands out nicely.
