You could substitute. This would be a better stocklist:

1 Royal Gramma
2 Occelaris/Percula Clownfish
1 Yellow Watchman Goby

Yep, not sure how the two Maroons would work out. I have read that it is best to keep just one per tank unless, of course, they are a mated pair. The Purple Dottyback is also aggressive.

I really like Greenturtle's list above. It has the Royal Gramma, which is very similar to the Dottyback, just not as aggressive. I think it is even prettier.

I agree with green turtles list. Any other fish I can add in a 29 gallon with that list already in it?

I would stay away from the maroons. True Perc's are good.

If you are going for color why not two true percs, a Catalina goby, 1 or two firefish, and a blood red fire shrimp?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
