Need some Fish Stocking Help!

I have a 46 Gallon Bow Tank. I would not like to limit any of the corals I wish to get in the future by the type of fish i choose. I plan on a mixed reef tank.

My Tank is almost 4 months old. I have a 1.5" sand bed, plenty of algea. alot of live rock with nooks and caves.

I have a Black & White Occelaris Clown and Orange Occellaris Clown.

I am looking for the most beautiful and colorful fish that will work in my tank. I am not looking for anything that is expert level care.

I have done so much thinking about rethinking about this over the past 3 months that i basically am just going to wipe the slate clean b/c i just cant make up my mind and Im going nuts trying to find the best fish, and there are so many fish out there and only a few that i can get.

I would like atleast 1 or 2 fish to be active, (my clowns tend to hang out all day). I would like fish at all levels of the tank. and no aggressive fish.

Does anyone have a fish or two that would be a must have for them, or a whole list that they would recommend for me?

thanks so much, I really need reefcentral to help me out here before I lose my mind.

again, popping colors, multple color, vibrant colors is what im looking for or hoping for.

Look into Fairy and Flasher wrasse for colors that pop. With a 46g your limited to what you can get. Are the clowns a pair or have the staked out their territory in the tank yet?

I will thanks. i did have my eye on the Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse (liveaquaria is not in stock, and the pic on bluezoo has completely different colors, so i dont know what it would send me)

they are a good pair. nemo is alittle smaller and tags along wherever the bigger black and white one goes.

I went with Royal Gramma Basslet and a Pajama Cardinal for this QT period. after its over, I am thinking of getting 2 Wrasses, and then a flame angel for my final add.

I just need to figure out what 2 wrasses. i was set on the carpenter wrasse, however, i was unimpressed when seeing them at LFS today.

I def want active fish, as i feel my clowns and pajama and royal gramma are quite lazy.

Are the wrasses the way to go? what are your favorites? that wont eat coral.
