Not in a 5 gallon tank..... 10 gallons MINIMUM, and that's even pushing it.

You can ACTUALLY put fish in a 5 gallon tank???? I would never suggest that!

I had a single green clown goby in my 4g pico and felt terrible about having him in such a small tank. He is only about an inch long or less and stays in the rock work but it was still a tight fit. I ended up upgrading to a 20g for him and so I could get other micro fish.

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

do you understand that your tank is one thirtysixth of the MINIMUM size tank for a blue tang
the clown needs at least 20 gallons and same with the damsels

by the way, an adult blue tang is bigger than your tank

Don't add any more fish! A blue tang grows a foot long, clowns would outgrow that tank in 6 months, and even that white & black striped damsel will be 4+ inches in a year or two. I would suggest upgrading to a 20 or even better a 30 gallon then consider getting a clownfish, your tank looks really nice but your setting yourself up for a disaster...
