How many fish for a 30 gallon

I am just double checking to see what my limit would be for fish in a 32 gallon tank..yes I know the title says 30 gallon I tell myself it is a 30 gallon so I won't overstock my tank.

In the tank right now is one clown, one firefish, one lawnmower blenny, and one blue devil damsel, 3 dwarf hermit crabs and a handful of different snails and one condy anemone.

Thanks for the feedback

Not very many more fish. Maybe a small basslet or something of that nature.

There are many factors. What type of fish and how big they get. Does your tank look crowded?

make sure you put some extra algae in that tank for the algae blenny.
to answer the question, it depends on what type of fish. you could have a few clown gobies, since they don't swim much, and aren't aggressive.

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

i've kept them together and saw no aggression. the thing i didn't like about them is that they would always perch on my sps.

Mine seems to like to hide out in the branches of my candycane. He also like to lay on one of my huge mushrooms. I think he thinks he's a clown fish lol

But as far as the clown gobies, I've read on liveaquaria not to house two of them. cause I for sure would love another one, they are darling tiny fish
