Can I add another fish or two, or would it be too much??

Subject says it all. I think I am probably maxed out, but wanted to ask anyway.
I was thinking of a coral beauty angel and /or a pearl headed jawfish.
Always glad for the advice.

I wouldn't add anymore if it were my tank, but that's just me. You might be able to fit a small jawfish in there though.

You have 20+" of adult fish as it is (if my info is correct) and even with the quality skimmer IMO you are already overstocked.

If you had an extended power outage your fish will quickly run out of oxygen as it is.

I wouldn't add any more fish.

I also agree that you are "full" as far as you bioload. You really dont want to push it just in case of an emergency like Micah was talking about.

I agree w/ everyone else. The Angel would definitely be pushing it, and the jawfish would probably not get along well w/ your yellow watchman goby.
edit-I just noticed the tang and the gramma... Definitely no room for anything else.
