I just wanna pop in here. Now I don't know if the pros here like my suggestions or not(Be honest with me guys) but here is some advice I got when I started. Make a list of all the fish you want. Find the peaceful ones you want and start with those. So if you get an Dwarf Angel for example you would put that in last because it is aggressive and if you put that in before peaceful ones it will harass and most likely kill them.

i am no Pro but +1 mister thats a great method... i would also add to research the needs of each to see if they are compatible in the environment that they need also

Try a single firefish or a few cardinals. I believe those are peaceful and will be nice additions. I don't know a ton about wrasses though.

I found that my citron goby dosn't like the firefish out of its cave at any time so I move the cintron goby to Qt going to likly get another firefish. Then, reintroduce the cintron goby after about a month.
