Frag tank fish

I know there are mixed reviews for fish in a frag tank but I have decided Im going to keep one in my 20H. Any suggestions for the fish?

I have in my frag tank: a lawnmower blenny: works all day keeping the algae down. Yellow tang: it looks cool and it picks at algae all day.. a peppermint shrimp:the only thing that grows faster than algae is aptasia. a six-line wrasse: dont know what he does, i just had no place else to put him. others say that a some wrasses are good pest eaters, i cant confirm this. if you had to only pick one, i would pick the lawnmower blenny
