Damsels are re devils if the sea, there very, VERY, aggressive. Sea horses have to be in a species only tank for special feeding an such. Lawns mowers are also hard to feed. Take a look at firefish, tailspot blennys, and 6 line wrasse

So i guess the sea horses,LM blenny, and damsels are out so could i get
1 sand sifting goby
2 ocellaris clowns
1 peppermint shrimp
1 emerald crab
1 tail spot blenny

I just looked them up they grow to 10 inches!!!! And need at least a 75g but my dad hates rectangle tanks and insists on getting ether a cube or full moon so we decided the cube.
Also do you know of any small schooling fish that we could get for the 30g?
