I'm wanting to add some more fish.

Current stock is 1 small kole tang, 1 wheelers shrimp goby, and 1 firefish. I removed the clowns AGAIN for hosting my Duncan coral. So I will not be putting any more clownfish in this aquarium. Any other suggestions? I love the colors of the royal gramma, but I hear they can get pretty aggressive. I'm also thinking maybe an angelfish? I don't like the chance of them nipping corals. Also thinking maybe some sort of blenny? Your input is much appreciated!

Why didn't you like the clowns living in the duncan? a friend of mine has the same situation. We both agree it looks pretty cool, and the duncan doesn't seem bothered either way.

I don't like it just because I've heard of that stressing the coral to death and it is one of my absolute FAVORITE corals. Haha. I love the way it looks. I wish I didn't worry about them stressing it, but I do. Plus, when I cut up shrimp and feed it to my Duncan and acans, the clownfish would pick at them for about 2 days afterwards. It was just kind of annoying. They're happily living in my zoa garden tank now.

If the coral didn't seem effected, than it would not have stressed it to death. you would know if it was stressed. It would look like total crap.

That's true. I just didn't want to risk it.

But, my point is, if it didn't look bad, you didn't risk anything.

I get that. Lol. I just didn't want it to get to that point before I did something. Plus I had a tank to move them into, so it wasn't a big deal.

There are quite a few fish to choose from, but like you said, the chance one or more may munch on corals is pretty good for most. I do like coral beauty, flame, and potters angels.
I also like those green clown gobies. They don't take up much room and are pretty cool looking close up. Catalina gobies are nice too.
Any of the fairy wrasses are also good choices.
