Can I stock these fish?

Hello! I have a 29 gallon Biocube reef setup, and I have a few questing about stocking fish and inverts (can I stock these together). I have done research and I believe I can, but I want second opinions so I don't throw money down the drain. The tank has live rock in it, and I want to get corals.
Currently I have two Banngai Cardinals, a Blue Spotted Watchman Goby, and some Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs. The following fish are ones I want to get.

Fish:
A pair of Ocellaris Clowns.
Maybe a Flame Hawkfish or Royal Gamma Basslet.

Inverts:
Snapping Shrimp for my Goby.
Scarlet Skunk Cleaners and Peppermint Shrimp.
An Arrow Crab?
A Pom Pom Crab?
A BTA, Turbo Snails, and some Stars (Serpents and Sand Sifting stars).

Thanks,
Finnster!

The clowns would probably be fine. A flame hawk will eat your shrimp eventually and can get pretty big. I'd just get the 2 clowns and call it stocked.

Okay, thanks! But what about the inverts, any ideas?

Which pistol shrimp were you thinking? There are a few different kinds on offer. I personally went with candy stripe because it's considered the most peaceful.

the arrow crab will get too big for that size tank and may go after fish.
the pom pom crab, BTA, and starfish should be added after the tank has matured 9-12 months otherwise they often dont do to well and may starve.


The shrimp are fine, just keep the cleaners down to only two in that size tank because the dominant pair will kill the others. they should be fine with the peppermint shrimp though. you could also get a flame shrimp as well with no problem.


and I agree with Bribo, the pair of clowns and it's full, or 5 fish total.

Okay good to note, can I get a Coral Banded Shrimp instead? I want something that will get rid of MOST (not all) of my Bristleworms, like an Arrow Crab.

The coral banded would kill your other shrimp in that size tank. If you control the food input into your tank you will control the bristle worm population
