There are numerous shrimp gobies other than the yellow watchmen out there and they are all very interesting animals. Bi color blennies,cannary blenny,stary blenny,flame tail blenny, are all pretty nice fish as well but make sure you have an established tank as they like to rasp on the rock and glass for diatoms and algaes.If you do go with the flame angel and coral beauty I would make sure to add the coral beauty first as the flames can be more aggressive. Both are gambles in the coral nipping department but the coral beauty is a safer bet. Remember that if you get a hawk fish it closes the door for your shrimp options,they love their shrimps.

Good old green star polyps and mushrooms are a pretty good starter coral,if you have troubles there you may want to reassess the tank situation.

And for the record I love my six line wrasses, I have several,not together, and they are great. I love the color\pattern and they are really good about cleaning rocks and corals of pests zipping through the rock work and branches or corals. I have seen a male become territorial towards other wrasses but not all. Similar types of fishes should be added first to establish territory and pecking order.

I would wait until you are capable of sustaining coral before thinking about an anemone, not only do they require good lighting and water quality they tend to not like changes. This makes them a resident that you really want to make sure you're tank is established for a while before throwing one in the mix.

Most of the easier to keep species are not so desirable as they tend to not host many animals and generally pack a potent fish threatening sting. I would do much research and wait to add the right amemone at the right time.
