Blennies and Gobies?

Hello all! First time posting here, so I will give a brief intro...
I am a few months into my second salt tank in life so far. My first was a nanocube years ago. I currently have a 30 gallon fowlr until yesterday, purchased a few soft corals.

Anyway, I really enjoy the goby and shrimp symbiosis and would love to have them in my tank. However, I currently have a scooter blenny and a Molly miller blenny. The only other fish in the tank are a dottyback and a juvenile grey angel (yes I know they get huge, temporary inhabitant!) The blennies get along great, as does everyone else. But is my tank too small and will they get along?!

Appreciate any input!

I would say you've maxed out your stock for a 30gal. You can always set that nanocube again though

Wow really?! Four fish in a 30 is max?!

A bit surprised but I am a newbie!

The Molly miller stays in a hole to himself, while the scooter roams around, seems that with the 40 lbs of live rock another bottom dweller would work.

I was thinking about getting a bi-color Benny and was advised against it with my pistol and goby combo. The advice came from someone who had a 6foot tank and put the two kinds in the tank and they wouldn't leave each other alone. I have a 28 gallon and my stock list is 2-clowns, 1-royal gamma, and pistol and goby combo. The only other I might add would be a cherub angel but that comes with very careful consideration and questioning of others. Other then that I am maxed out on my stock.

Thanks for the replies! Looks like another tank will have to be the goby, pistol tank!
