Question Ideas on stock list for 60g cube?

Hello! does anyone have any ideas for this tank? I would like to maybe have 1 or a pair of centerpiece fish. And then a few smaller fish.

I currently have one clownfish in the tank, and a lawnmower blennie in QT because I think he has ick.

I have minimal rockwork right now, but I have a few extra pieces of dry rock I can add in.

The fish must meet a few conditions:

1) The fish won't grow out of the tank
I don't plan on upgrading in the foreseeable future

2)I don't want a fish that's overly aggressive, prone to nipping and coral, or jumping

3) The fish can't be pricey. $100 max


Thank you!

Bluespot

Can’t go wrong with a bluespot jawfish. Meets all your criteria and they’re beautiful and have personality

Nothing wrong with some firefish, orange or purple. Clown Gobies, any watchman gobies or even cardinal fish. Royal gramma is nice but they are a little aggressive at times. Lubbocks wrasse as well. I have 2 of them at around 2 inches, but they are jumpers

I currently have as 60 cube and here is my stock list:

Purple tang (got really small)
trio of anthias
Flame angel
Coral beauty angel
orange back wrasse
diamondback goby

Looking to add a pair of clowns and call it a day. All have beautiful color and are very healthy. Depends on the route you want to take with your tank.

won't tangs, especially a purple tang; outgrow a 60g cube. If not which tangs will be suitable?

he probably will outgrow it eventually but I got him when very small. I believe fish grow to their environment, but could be wrong with that. If it comes to the point where he does outgrow I will catch him and sell. Back in the day I had two tangs in a 57g and they were fine. there is no safe bet to say they wont outgrow the tank so I would stay away from tangs if you're not looking to eventually catch and sell.
