reef safe but hardy fish


So I am planning on setting up a fowler for my maroon and damsel. My maroon has been giving his anemone a hard time and now has began nipping at the torch and hammer as well. I would like to go with less agressisive fish in the 24 gallon reef I have. I would also like them to be fairly easy to care for. I know I will probably get a couple of percula clowns. Thought about a couple of watchmen gobies. Which is about all this tank will support. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are bi-color blennies reef safe? I really like them but was told they are 50/50. Is my LFS wrong?

We have a watchman goby and a pistol shrimp which reside in the same hole. They are fun to watch and fun to feed. I think the pistol shrimp may be questionable at times, but ours is docile. He just hangs out in the whole with the watchman and then they eat together.

I have heard of trouble with maroon clown and perculas in the same tank. Has anyone else heard of this concern???? I am not an expert, but I would look into that.

We also have a true percula and a black and white percula. They are really pretty together. And reef safe.

Live Aquaria web site has a lot of information on fish. They list agressiveness and whether or not they are reef safe. I also think the size of your tank matters with aggressiveness of fish.

Again...I am not an expert, and I am sure a lot of others have more experience to give, but this may help.

thought I'd post pics of my poor pinky.
Before and after the maroon decided to host it. As you can see it used to have long pink tips. Hope they grow back soon.

The maroon will be in a tank with damsel. I want only safe happy fish in the reef tank. Got mix info on the perculas some sites say they are peaceful will others say they are aggressive to other fish. Does anyone know if you can mix the gobies? I like the yellow watchman and pink and blue goby.

I had a 6 line that was very aggressive. I couldn't keep a large maroon clown with it, the wrasse just kept harrassing it. I'd stay away from the 6 line, even though some people have had very good luck with them.

Hubby has a Lawnmower Blenny, Yellow Watchman Goby, Engineer Goby, Dragon Goby and a Scooter Blenny all together and they don't even let on the others are there. No problems at all. The Engineer and the Dragon actually sleep together in the same cavern most nights.
