There's no "even if"- they will grow, especially the clowns. You put all your fish at risk if you overstock too badly. The fish you've picked are pushing it to begin with.

want more fish? you'll have to get a bigger tank. No two ways about it.

Not much. It still has to do with space as well. If you want, skip the clown goby. use that slot for another fish.

Although the tank isn't too too horribly over stocked if you had gone woth a clown goby. I can only imagine what you will want to put in it's place.

Do you have any chance of getting a larger tank? Is it the space you don't have or the money? Cause if you have the space i really would urge you to get a larger tank. You were talking about getting a pico tank, for that $50 you could have a 55g tank.

I'm not an "expert" but the probable issues that glare at me are just common sense if you've kept fish before.

No one wants to be the bad guy, but theres gotta be a limit. Five fish pretty much hit that limit. I say get some corals once you get your light and concentrate on them. Corals can be so much fun and quite addictive too. I can't not buy one at least once a week. I probably have over 30 in the big tank alone. And forget about the 20g, it's stock filled with corals. LOL

7 fish would be really over stocked in my biocube. Youll be battling nitrates and nitrite constantly. Pleeeeese don't. They will be super stressed and you'll learn your lesson the hard way. Carey has 6 in her cube and she says she feels over stocked.
