you should let the tank stabalize for a little bit but when its done i dont know if another fish would be a great idea but you might be abel to pull it off but still, i dont know. the way i see it, inverts are really the cool things, fish are just a bonus but thats just my opinion.

Didn't we already go over this? In your last post you stated you had too many fish already and now you are looking to get another one?
My final suggestion would be to look at inverts...Get a few sexy shrimp....

How are your nitrates reading? And how old is the tank? You just my need to wait a while before adding anything. I know it's hard.

Also, I'm curious. How'd the gramma act towards other fish? Did it harass the firefish?
I've heard they can be territorial so any new fish might be pestered.

To be honest you shouldnt get another fish. If you get another fish there is a high probability the same will happen to it.

Slow down there!!! At the the quickest when starting a new tank add one fish a month. But as others said you're pushing it a bit in a 14 gallon. Please let the tank become stable ( bacteria has to catch up to your current load) and maybe add a few shrimp, snails etc like others have said. Theres some neat looking inverts. Unfortunatly with a small tank you're pretty limited on livestock. If you decide to get another ( hopefully at least a month) you should stick with a tiny goby fit for nano tanks.
