Question Cardinalfish as tankmate?

Hello everyone. I would like to know if a cardinalfish either a pajama or banghai would be alright in my tank. I have a 20 gallon fowlr with:
1-Ocellaris Clownfish
1-Pink Spotted Goby
1-Emerald Crab
4-Blue Legged Hermit Crabs
5-Assorted Snails
Does anybody have any objection to this? I would like the Cardinalfish and a cleaner shrimp and thats it.

I have a pajama cardinal fish and I think it would do okay in your 20. Don't expect it to swim around alot since it's more of a night time fish. They also do better in groups of three or more. One will be okay in your 20.

I guess you might say they bicker, not so much fight. But that is the reason to house either one or three so they don't gang up on each other.

Oh ok. I've also heard that in group of 3 they will pair up and kill the leftover.
