The wrasse is cool. I've just acclimated two small clowns and they're getting along very well with our four chromis. I also have a small goby. Having trouble getting food down to him but I've seen him swipe a munch or two from the other fish. I cheer for him/her?

Looks like you are overstocked as far as fish goes, Remember that fish grow pretty rapidly and you only have a 30g.

I'm not to sure what they are called but they stay in the anemone and have filters on their claws for food,i've only known them as anemone crabs

Thincat: I think the # of fish we have in the tank will work fine. If They get too big I'll release them to my LFS. Thanks for writing.
