am i stocked?

20 long and I have a full grown ywm, a normal midas blenny, and a small clownfish

I also have a pistol shrimp, skunk shrimp, 2 nass snail, 2 nerite, 1 tiger conch

i also have a lot of corals

I have been thinking about adding another fish, anything possible? ive had my tank a year maybe and its doing great

if not a fish, anything else to add that would be fun? besides corals

I would hold off adding any fish into a 20 as some of those fish, like the clown, can outgrow the tank over time. Overstocking can lead to parameter issues, which might be pointing to the algae growing on your back glass, and leads to possible tank crashing.

Over stocking requires more regular monitoring of parameters and pwc then there's a risk you have to take.
