i like the orange clown alot.. u should try that.. damn swee and hardy.. try not to intro damsel particularly in such a small tank.. i mean actually clownfish is also consider damsel but they are less aggressives.. personally find IQ5 not really suitable to keep fish.. the back compartment tend to dry out too fast and too small.. blood shrimp are actually quite attractive although they don really move around.. they will go crazy when u drop pellets in the tank..

Setup is IQ5, filtration is build-in, i never use the media iq5 provided, find it too small and little.
Got a dymax fan to cool down the temperature on 24/7, now temperature maintain at 25 degree C.
Light is the led light provided by iq5

Blood shrimp have one problem, they are seriously nocturnal. Means they are always hiding. Mine rush out for food but within seconds it run back into his territory. Welcome to the iq5 community..haha.. My iq5 tank of 2 false percula, 2 skunk shrimp, 1 blood shrimp, 1 saron shrimp and 1 serpent banded star is still surviving well since I started it.. Ammonia and nitrite always at 0 and nitrate always below 20.. not to show off or something but to give u encouragement that its not that difficult to take care of.
