Perc Pair+Green Banded Goby

Do you think I could keep a perc pair and a green banded goby in a 12 gallon tank?

Others may have a different opinion but I would stick with just the percs. They can be quite territorial, especially in smaller systems.

Green banded gobies are not what you would consider benthic fish as many gobies tend to be. It will roam about the tank which will most likely cause disputes with the clowns.

Sticking witht he general rule of 1 inch of fish per 5 gal, I would say that would be pushing it. You would have to be very dedicated to water changes and upkeep for a 12 gal anyway.
You could probably do the 3 fish if they are bought small and you have at least 15 lbs of LR with 3 to 4 inches of LS, to make up for the bio-load..
