Any thoughts on the max number of fish for the Biocube 29? Currently I have...

Percula clownfish pair
Helfrichi firefish
Yellow watchman goby

I really want one more fish; I was thinking of maybe a wrasse or blenny. Any ideas? I don't want to overstock it though. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a FOWLR for a while as well.

Also, how much of a CUC would you recommend? I have 2 astraea snails, 2 nassarius snails, and 1 hermit. Should I add more, and if so, what?

Don't try to fix something that isn't broke. You just might end up breaking it

5 is a good number for a 29

To add to what you have already I think the best thing is a blue/green chromis or a small dart fish or maby a clown goby.

Nassarius are good sand cleaners, I think I had 5 in my cube. What about a 6 line wrasse or if it is FOWLR there are some really cool small wrasses that are not reef safe.
