Time for a new fish. Ideas please

I think I'm about ready for my fourth fish but I have little clue as to what I want. I have one clown fish, a flame angel and a pyjama fish. Any ideas?

Current Tank Info: 55g, 50 lbs live rock, 40lbs live sand, xenias, mushrooms, medusa, sponge, boxing, cleaner and peppermint shrimps, flame angelfish, pyjama fish, spotted peacock wrasse and two clownfish, crabs and snails!

my $.02 - Gramma loreto or royal gramma

I had great success with mine. Very colorful - staked out a "cave" in the live rock and hung out there - almost always visible. Would come out on occasion, esp. feeding time, and to defend its cave - rushing out, mouth open, etc. but only threat behavior. No one else paid any attention. Would sleep by hanging upside down in the cave. Great looking fish, and hardy.

Ya I have to 2nd that I think Gramma are neat fish, and are very Inexpensive. If you have some rock work they will find a nice cave or hole to make there home.

And I thought buying an puppy would be to expensive!

Current Tank Info: 23" LCD with Windows Aquarium screen saver.

second clownfish, much better in pairs IME

False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.

Current Tank Info: 90 gallon 36x24x24 reef

A second clown is very cool. Instead of the royal gramma, if you can get your hands on a Brazilian Gramma, I think they look better. But both are good fish.

Flame Hawkfish - always entertaining!
