Stocking question

I have 1 Ocellaris clown and really wanna get another but my tank has 1 clown, 1 green mandarin, 1 orange spotted goby, 1 longnose hawkfish, 2 yellowtail damsels, and a coral banded shrimp so would adding another clown be ok? Also I would like to add a diamond watchman goby but rather have another clown so could I add both? I guess I just don't really know the rules for stocking in saltwater

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

From what I have heard, it would probably be best just to add one more fish as your last fish . I would go with the Clown because you may have aggression issues with two Gobies in a 55g tank .

Oh almost forgot, the diamond goby is kinda hard to keep in a newish tank. Thye eat food from the sand and if the tank isnt established then theres not much food for him,. :-(

It's a 55 gallon tank and it's been up for 13 months now so it's not that new

Cool, that's good.

I would add another clown and see how that goes. The watchman also gets a bit large so I'd wait on him and see.
