29g biocube stocking?

I'm upgrading from a 10g to a 29g in the near future so I will be moving my ocellaris clown and citron clown goby from the 10g to the new tank but I don't know what else to get. I'm thinking another clown and maybe a royal gramma/longnose hawkfish. Is the hawkfish reef safe and will it eat inverts? Also, how hard are green mandarins to care for?

Thanks

Long nose are known for munching on shrimp and small fish. It might not be a wise idea to house one with a small goby.
When it comes to mandarins, they are extremely hard to care for. For the most part they only eat pods and need an extremely large amount to be successful. I kept one in my 55 reef for a tad bit over a year and spent a fortune trying to keep the tank stuffed with pods. This was with it eating mysis shrimp as well. Not something I would recommend.
What I would recommend would be a dottyback. Great fish for a tank this size. I loved my indigo dottyback, had great personality.

cardinal fish and firefish are also neat additions to a cube.

Would I be overstocked with 2 clowns, clown goby, bicolor dotty back and a bangaii cardinal? If that's too much I'll skip the cardinal I think

I would try a neon goby instead of a cardinal.

The tank should be here for next weekend. Do you reckon I'd need to buy new live sand? I know I'll need to some more live rock. How should I go about transferring the fish?

In my 29 biocube I have 2 o. Clowns, starry blenny(my fav), and a bang Cardinal.

I feed mysis every three days or so because the cardinal doesn't eat pellets or flakes. Ocassionaly will drop a couple pellets for the clowns on off days. 20% pwc religiously a week and nitrates stay at 0. Thinking about getting another fish but I don't want to push it. Everything seems happy at the moment.

Thanks for the advice, I think I'm gonna go for a pair of clowns, royal gramma, citron clown goby and a neon goby. Does that sound good as a final stocking list?
