Ok, i think i have a start of a stocking list so correct me if i am wrong. A mandarin goby, some sort of shrimp goby or other goby, and either 2 clown fish or a clown fish and some other fish i cant think of any ideas? Can't decide, does this sound good or too many? Also how many inverts can i fit in this tank (shrimp and stuff)?

Scratch mandarin idea, they have a nasty feeding habit and tend to starve in small tanks unless trained to eat prepared foods which is a pain to do. Maybe a yellow watchman goby, 2 clowns, and a firefish. Could look at a clown goby or jawfish too. I would go with one cleaner or peppermint shrimp, 3-5 astrea snails, and 5-8 nassarius snails.

O ya, clown gobys. I will probably end up doing 1 of them. The only thing i hat about this is that i like going to the store (i have a LFS i trust fully, the only 1 i do) and doing a impule buy, in other words going to the store and going holy cow i like that fish and get it (after asking if it is compatible). It being a nano hinders that. And you can scratch the fire fish, i am not a fan of them and i would like to try a diffrent fish to take its place.

They almost get 3", and your typical ocellaris clowns get roughly about the same size, so it should be fine as long as you keep just one. Either that, or you could go with a goby, a clown, and three PJ cardinals.

They get about the same size, about 3 inches.

Ok, i think i am either going 2 clowns, 1 benggai cardinals, 1 clown goby or watchman goby. It is gonna involve the goby (either clown or watchman), clown fish, banggai cardinal, and a firefish.
