    Hi Extreme (Jacques ;)) - I would want to suggest look out for some onyx true percula clowns - they are AWESOME....

    My dutioti (neon pseudochromis) is absolutely AWESOME looking as well. But, I do believe that they can get little bit aggresive with smaller fish (the dutoiti only reaches about 7cm).

    That said - what about a true royal gramma? They are awesome as well?

    And I always love the midasblennie........

    My favourite small fish...

    Chalk Bass - Serranus tortugarum - keep in small groups of 3 to 5 fish

    Yellowtail Demoiselle - Neopomacentrus azysron - group of 4 to 6

    Yellowstriped cardinalfish - Apogon cyanasoma - keep singly, in pairs or groups of 5 to 7
