Adding More fish.

I have 1 yellowfin damsel and a blue damsel in my 20 long. My filtration is doing a great job the LR is working well. I want to fit more damsels in there or maybe a more interesting fish. Any suggestions?

Royal gramma, Neon blue goby, watchman goby, or orchid dottyback IMO.

Got shrimp, hermits, snails already?

I got 3 little hermits. They do a great job at cleaning up the dead stuff off the live rock.

Damsels can get nasty so make sure you add a fish that is hardy. More crabs would be nice also. They do not add to the bio load....

add 3 nassarius snails - they're extremely useful!

No, Maybe, its a possibility..
They could but if you buy some empty shells from a craft store and but them in the tank for the hermits they should leave them alone. Boil the shells for a few minutes and then toss them in.
Snails are a good thing for the tank and they need to be replaced over time.
