In my opinion you could add two small fish, like gobies or a goby and a blenny. The damsels may not be too happy getting new friends, they can be quite a handful. lol

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would be careful adding new fish with your damsels.They can be alittle aggressive.I would say when you do add new fish,turn your light off for 10-20min.Then turn it back on so the damsel's don't get too irritated with the new fish.

I agree with the others that damselfish can get very aggressive and can bully many fish, even if the fish they are picking on is alot bigger! If you want to be REALLY safe I'd say take out the damsels or don't add any more fish. You can experiment though with a small fish and see how that goes, but that would be a gamble.

I would go with one damsel and one clown(the clown will be way more dominant over time)
