- 1 firefish
- 1 small yellow tail damsel fish

Yes you are over stocked. If you were to get rid of the 4 chromis then you'd be alright.

They are all very small fish. I would say that you might be OK but adding more is out of the question. If you had some dwarf angels or something of similar size then you might be over.
