If I'm not mistaken goby and blennys are carnivores and you have to have a well established tank with a lot of pods or they will starve to death.....some goby or blennys will accept Mysis or brine shrimp...

Jawfish are jumpers so have a good lid on. The bicolor blenny is somewhat colorful

I had a firefish, Midas blenny, and a 6 line wrasse in a 30 gal and all three got along well. Although the Midas is my favorite I'd recommend going with the 6 line bc both the firefish and clownfish are generally stationary swimmers. The 6 line will swim around the tank. The Midas will perch on a rock a lot.

I would be cautious when adding any wrasse species because they can be peaceful but they can also be aggressive.

Most blennys are herbivores but. Gobies on the other hand are carnivores, but alot more on the peaceful side than 6-lines. I believe you are refering to the 'scooter blennies' which are actually not a blenny at all, but a dragonet. Like mandarins, there prime food source is pods.
