Am I overstocked?

Tell me what you guys think

40 gallon bowfront with a 20-ish gallon fuge

2 clarkii's
1 long tentacle anemone
1 watchman goby
1 yellowhead jawfish
1 royal gramma
1 randalls pistol shrimp
2 cleaner shrimp and some hermit crabs (5) and nasarrius snails (3)

Am I okay to add maybe ONEEEE more fish? I was also thinking of making my fuge a mantis shrimp tank, what do you guys think?

I think you can fit another fish in, kinda depends on what you want. Any ideas of what you wanted to add?

I was thinking of another yellowhead jawfish :3, I got a weakness for burrowing stuff.

What do you guys think about the mantis+fuge idea? Safe to do while adding another fish?

I personally dont think youre overstacked at all. As long as your levels are ok and the fish arent aggressive and have place to swim I think youre perfectly fine. Mantis shrimp are amazing, but I would be worried about it braking the fige and having 20g of water on the floor + a dead mantis.
