Chromis for new 29 gallon?

I upgraded my 20 to a 29 and now I want to add more fish. Currently I have an ocellaris clownfish, watchman goby, and a yellow tailed damsel. Don't worry the damsel is pretty peaceful. Clownfish is the real bully in the tank. If I can't get chromis, what other recommendation are there? Right it is a reef tank.

Chromis for new 29 gallon?

I have two Clarkii clowns, a royal gramma, a yellow watchman goby, and two blue reef chromis in my 29 and everyone gets along fine. It is overstocked though but it's temporary because they're babies mostly and we are in the process of setting up a 75G salt.

I can't say whether you'd be fine doing it as this is my experience with my stock but I can say mine get along well.

I plan on getting two chromis in the tank and hopefully everyone will get along fine

I want reef safe fish of course, but I do want a peaceful fish that wouldn't do anything that would bother other fish. Problem is my clownfish is a little feisty

Does a pygmy angel work or is the tank too small?
