    Wrasses are nice, anthias or maybe cardinals.

    Fairy or flasher wrasses are great.

    Royal gramma is always a great fish, gold assessor basslet is also stunning but more pricy.

    Springer damsels are the most peaceful damsels, maybe they could be your 'schooling' fish.

    Anthias need to be kept in bigger groups and they add quite a bit to your bioload as they need to be fed 2-3 times daily.

    Jawfish are great characters, I like the Blackcap Jawfish.

    If you don't plan on shrimp, a Longnose hawkfish is one of my favorites.

    Agree with the above. You can also look at a Tomini tang.

    Jip. Should not be a problem. Different species, colour and shape.
