fish ideas for 14 gal

My ocellaris that I have had for many years just died yesterday mysteriously and I am so bummed out about it. I really do not want to rush out and buy any more fish right now, I want to let the tank just go fish-less for a few months just in case my ocellaris died of some illness that still may be lingering around in there. But, I am just pondering what I should get...any suggestons?

125g cichlid - 14g biocube reef - 6g planted Edge - 20g L goldfish/African Clawed Frog

you may also want to do a small water change, and prob. check all your water params before doing it.

Thalesthepearsei,

There are no other fish in the tank at all?
Can you photograph and post the tank as is, now?

I'll be going to the wholesalers here in Los Angeles in about 4-5 weeks with an LFS-owner friend of mine. If I find either, I can pick it up and have it shipped immediately if you're interested. We'll have to correspond verbally before I go.

yep. beautiful thing about going to the wholesalers, is that you'd pay about half of what you saw it for retail. can i ask what the $$$ was on that Lep you saw?
