How many fish...

I have a 20 gallon setup. I have 2 clown fish, 2 small chromis, an assortment of snails and a serpent star. I would love to get a goby. Would that be too many fish for my tank.

I'd say that two clowns and 2 chromis is already too much for a 20 IMO

It would depend on what type of goby you plan on getting

Maybe a yellow watchman or clown goby and call it stocked.

Possibly a clown or neon goby but keep up with the water changes and/or run a skimmer.

A court jester or clown goby would be cool

I would say it depends on your tank. How are your nitrates and phosphates holding out? If they aren't near zero then I would suggest that you skip adding any other fish as it will just make tank parameters worse.

Sounds ok so far, the only thing to keep in mind is the tank size requirements when all the fish are adults. We can be easily swayed when the fish are "store" size.
