Yes, 2 chromis, a clownfish, and a goby would be great. Could probably get one or two other small fish and some inverts.

Chromis are a type of damsel, but they are completely peaceful and quite docile. Never have I seen one get aggressive.

You could get away with a flame angel. How about a flame angel and a pair of clowns or cardinals with a watchman goby/pistol shrimp pair

I had a school of 5 and nipped at the weakest of the school til near death which many others have seen the same behavior. My dominant male wouldn't even allow new additions to the tank including my clove polyps.

Flame angels are fine in a 30 gallon tank, but they are semi-aggressive (and not reef-safe really, but since you aren't getting corals it doesn't matter). I think they can nip at some inverts, but not really sure.

I think a clown, a cardinal, and the watchman goby/ pistol shrimp pair and a flame angel (might be pushing it) would be a stunning combo.

I meant either a pair of clowns or a pair of cardinals not both

I suppose that could be true for larger groups, but probably not 1-3 chromis. For example, cardinals are very shy if there is one, and quite lonely, put when in a small group they can be aggressive. I've only had 3 chromis and they were very shy and peaceful.
