if you want something easy, look into chromis. they live in schools and are very colorful. i have 4 green ones, they are the coolest fish in my tank. no matter what, they stay close to eachother like a team

i agree, chromis are nice, and cheap. and i hear they live for ages. if you are okay with some territorial fish then damsels are nice cheap additions that are great as first fishes, especially the blue and yellow ones. i have 3 damsels in my 20 gal with my clown and everyone gets along great
