I feel that way about my reef tank. I have fish since it is a bare bottom tank, in fact i could be considered over stocked, but aside from guests talking about them i hardly notice them. I havent had a fish loss in almost 8 months and have decided if I do(not trying to clear them out), I wont replace them since none of them are doing their assigned jobs anyway. Rabbit wont eat hair, coral beauty(blah), my clowns dont like each other but do not mess with each other either, mandarin actually did his job, just didnt do it fast enough(eat flatworms), 4 line wrasse didnt eat any(but it is a cool fish so G-Fresh stays, bonus points if you can name the movie that name is from), Chromises look nice and add color and movement. I like the smaller more less noticeable fish if you didnt notice. If things die out, I might stick with more reclusive fish in the future.
If you want oddball fish that are cool and fun to interact with but wont steal the show and compliment your corals I have some suggestions.
Hectors's and Harlequin gobies
Possum Wrass(one of my faves)
marine betta/comet(also a fave)
Either of the Assessors yellow or blue
All these guys look awesome but wont distract from the coral or mess with it, and with a hundred gallon, all would be able to fit in my opinion. After your tank is established for awhile and you have a big enough tank to think about a mandarin or misc dragonette.
