I keep fish that are micro fish, they are an inch or less. Clown gobies and some blennies fit the bill. i woudlnt suggest 2 more full size fish. lol I've kept 2 29g tanks, one with 4 fish that I felt was fully stocked and now a biocube that has 6 fish. I feel I am ok considering what fish I have. Everyone needs to have their own area and swim room. I kinda just assumed that part was common sense. LOL

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

Well in this case as stated in the first post we are dealing with 3 3-4” fish 2 of which can be very aggressive, a small sandbed fish, and considering another 3-4” fish in a royal gramma that can be aggressive as well. I hate when people overstock but I’ll get off the soapbox with this, I think you have a very happy healthy stocked tank. Any pics?

No reason to step down, the Op should hear all sides. I think it's a fine line between over or under stocking. Alot depends on the fish certainly, without a doubt. Let's take my biocube for instance, it's my most overstocked tank. I have a pair of B&W clown and a firefish for my swimming type fish. I have a yellow watchman goby who has a really nice cave and an open area in front for when he wants to perch. My citron goby hides in the back right rocks like 95% of the time perched.
that leaves my two dragonets, the scooter covers the sandbed and the mandarin flutters around the rocks. Not one issue with any fish other than the YWG doing the open mouthed gesture on ocassion hehe which no fish minds.

My system happens to work for me, it's fish only and I do my water changes religiously. All the fish are fat and healthy, dragonets included. I havent had any diseases or breakouts or deaths. Tanks been only up for 8 months or so, so time will tell but so far as is well.
If I had the Op's tank I would consider a firefish, two spot blenny maybe, a clown goby of some kind or maybe even a cardinal fish.

I happen to have some shots of my tank, its nothing special but it's clean and healthy.

I know right? I got lucky in that she eats frozen food but it did take a month to get her to do so. In retrospect not sure if i would have taken the gamble if I had the chance to do it again. I love her to death though, just a dickens to get to eat real food and not only pods. LOL
