This guy is a great centerpiece for our tank. He loves to be right out front.

Radiata lion.
i agree that is an awesome fish, i used to have one of those and a fu-manchu... i would reccomend either one if u wanted a lion. they didnt care much for the bright light and stayed out of view for most of the day though... jme

for a showpiece fish id put my vote on a powderblue tang. i really wish emperor angels were reefsafe :(

Lionfish aren't always a good choice in a reef due to waste production, Sadly most Angels are really iffy around coral, Butterflies are notorious coral snackers if they survive, I have heard good things about Racoon Butterflies and they seem fairly hardy. I had one years ago and it was a neat fish, but it wasn't in a reef.
Naso tangs get too big, so do sailfins, they are prolly my fave of the easier to keep tangs.
Questions like this are always hard to answer due to the variables involved, good luck with your choice :)
