Hey guys! Iv been looking into getting a new fish for my 20 gallon nano reef. At the moment i have Yellow tailed damsel fish

yes that's true,sorry i didnt look at your pic carefully enough, im using the app. if that's the case, royal gramma, firefish, an anemone, pygmy wrasse are all good choices as well. i do belie sandy substrate on the goby is a recommendation, but not an absolute necessity

Basslets can be a tad nasty but you already have a damsel so those two might get along. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I actually got really lucky with him. I originally got him with a domino damsel to help cycle but the other was a bully. It made him really passive. They both survived the cycle but when i got my clown the domino bit my clown pretty rough in the side iof the face. So naturally i threa him off a a ship haha but hes real passive along with my clown. They are buds i heard the basslet is agressive with others of the same species

As damsels age they get mean and cranky, kinda like real people. LOL

But if you are willing to go the semi aggressive route then it might be ok. The clown is in the damsel family anyways so they might all be "tough" enough to survive together. lol
