Question do you think i will be overstocked?

i have a 45 gallon tank with 50 pounds of live rock, a eheim cannisterfilter(100 gallon filtration) remora protein skimmer, a powerhead(not sure the model but has a filter attached to it as well) water changes every week

stock:

yellow wrasse - 2 inches
Toby pufferfish- 3.5 inches
maroon clown- 3.5 inches
scooter blenny- 2.5 inches

i want to add a neon goby or blue goby its got alot of diff names lol but its the black one with the blue line down the middle of the body
their really small and only get 2 inches max, you think i could get one of these guys possibly a pair of them?

LOL We are here just not social today i guess. I would think you'd be ok with one more fish, specially a small one. I can have about four in my 29 so you should be ok.

I'm not sure about that puffer though. I'm still new at this too. that might put your numbers lower if he's big and messy. Hopefully someone will come along, they usually do....

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

Is he one of those puffers that can gigantic or like a dwarf one? I'm gonna upgrade to a larger tank soon and would love a puffer. i dont even know if they are reef safe. Time to do some research. lol
