Fish overload?

Here is the fish plan for my 55g FOWLR (to become reef):

1 yellow watchman gobie
2 maroon goldstripe clowns
1 yellow tang

Would that max me out, or could I add another small fish?

55g cycled. 15g sump, refugium, lr rubble, mag 7, Maxi-Jet 1200. 36lbs hirocks.com, 20# keys 20# gulf lr.com to arrive on Wensday!

1.0 Albino Burmese Python
0.1 California Kingsnake
0.1 Ball Python
0.1 Amelystic Corn Snake

I think you could fit another fish in there. Maybe a royal gramma, a dottyback or a blenny. Or maybe even a dwarf angel.

If you keep excellent water parameters you could probably add a couple fish in there. You really only have one fish that is going to be a "swimmer". Don't add anything too big. Myself I would stay away from any dwarf angels as I don't think any of them are truly reef safe. A fairy wrasse and maybe a blue damsel would be very nice. I just added a blue damsel and his color is amazing and he is very docile.

Royal gramma or purple firefish would be nice.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I have always liked royal grammas. I plan on getting one once my 38 gallon is setup the way I want.

They are neat fish. I had one before but a yellow tang killed him. Not directly but he picked at him constantly. Till one day he was dead.

Tank was to small for a tang anyways. So I won't make that mistake again.
38 gal SW, CC, 40lbs base rock, 5lbs live, emporer 280, bio-wheel 330,tronic heater, 2 O. clowns, 1 firefish.

29 gal FW, boring...soon to be salt I think.

10 gal SW, 20lbs LS, 20lbs base rock, 1 unhappy domino damsel (he was in the 38...switched the percs and the damesel recently).
