If its been a few weeks, as suggested because its such a small system you probably didnt notice much of a spike.

I'd add
x2 Perc Clowns
Royal Gramma


Perc Clown
Royal Gramma
Clown Goby

Dont forget your ornamental shrimps, fire, cleaner etc..

That list is really overstocked. I would consider the following:

2 percula clownfish
1 purple firefish

Anymore than 3 fish in a 29 gal might cause you some headaches. I think you could squeeze a pair of neon gobys in there if you must. They stay about tetra size and cling to the bottom/glass/rockwork.

I think it's only fair to provide clownfish with a mate. They seem to be much happier, my pair also host in my flower pot coral.

For me, fish are only one element of the enjoyment of the home aquarium. I really enjoy my sexxy shrimp,flame scallop(which has been alive almost 4 months and still going really strong) skunk cleaner, peppermint, nassarius snails, corals etc etc
37 gal all glass
50lb LR
3' fine sand bed 1x Orange Stripe Prawn shrimp goby, 1x sixline wrassemated pair of true percula clowns, 1x CBS shrimp, 2x peppermint shrimp, 1x pistol shrimp, 1x tiger tale cuke, ~20+ snails, ~10+ hermits, 1xserpent star.
green Bubble coral, hammer coral (8 heads!) ,various Zoos,green finger leather, green star polpys ,shrooms

I agree that all of those fish would be overstocked. That is why I said I was looking to do any three of those listed. What I was really looking for was information on any potential problems with the fish listed (for example, there was some indication that the firefish would likely jump out). Right now I am leaning toward the suggestion StripesTheEel made and going a pair of clowns and a royal gramma. Thanks for the help everyone.
