Those fish are all compatable. With that setup I would only get 1 of the clownfish not much room for them to chase each other around. A 20g Long tank would give you much more flexability hint hint. They are only $20 at my LFS and still not huge to take up massive space. A 10g saltwater tank is for an advanced aquarist I am not brave enough to try it thats for sure. It Requires Daily maintenance so don't ever take a weekend trip without a tank sitter. Or at least an ATO unit


120G Oscar tank in progress

Personally, I'd say your tank is overloaded already from a space standpoint, so I couldn't really recommend another fish, even if it was compatible. At least you have an extra 10g of water to help you out with water quality.

One thing with the Banggai is that while it's "peaceful" I've noticed it can be fairly territorial. So in a 10g tank, that could become a problem with any tankmate. I've got a Banggai with a single O.Clown, three chromis, and a little clown goby. The Banggai seems to go through phases now and then where he'll chase the chromis all over. He'll make a cloud clicking sound as he snaps his jaws together. No nipping, just showing them who is boss. The chromis are good at ignoring him. I'm pretty sure there'd be mayhem in the tank if he was in a 10g.
