30 gallon reef stock ideas

Stock idea for 30 gallon reef...

2 ocellaris clowns
1 bicolor dottyback
1 yellow prawn goby
Any ideas for a third fish?
Will the dotty back work? I heard it was a bit agressive.

Clean up crew:
7 assorted snails
5 cleaner shrimp
1 pistol shrimp
4 hermits

Corals:
3 Duncan's
1 hammer
A TON of mushrooms
1 toadstool

5 cleaner shrimp is excessive for a tank this small lol. I would do 2-3 MAX. my 75g had two until I moved them to my 40g.

As far as fish, I might get a blenny of some kind, but I just really like blennies lol

But wouldn't the blenny and dottyback fight?

I wouldn't think so if you got like a lawnmower blenny or something like that. They look nothing like each other.

Careful with the angel. I have a coral beauty and killed my chromis first, then my two clowns and watchman goby. Came home from vacation yesterday and it got my lawnmower blenny while I was away. Will be returning him this week. BTW I have a 30 gal.

That's a little scary. Thanks I'll keep that in mind.
