A dwarf angel, a Midas goby, or a tail spot blenny would work. Live aquaria is helpful also

It might, but there are serval free swimming gobies and blenny. The firefish and the Midas are one

Cool I will look into those.

I'm thinking really only 1/2 small fish before I'm at max capacity, correct?

I think you could get away with 3. Fire fish stay small

Okay cool!


I had a fire fish right when I started with a 20g and the clowns bullied him into a cave and I never saw him again until he was hermit chow

Aww, that's sad, I'm planning a pair of clown and a fire fish in my 25 and I hope that doesn't happen

The clowns are my OGs . And they did the same thing to an angel ( which I know NOW didn't belong in the 20... Blame the LFS)
It would get bullied into the back, not be allowed to eat, and be hermit chow one morning.

They pretty much forced me to upgrade and now that I have they have their area and everyone gets along.

Maybe just add the clowns last? And rearranging the LR always confused them into not being jerks for a day.
