I found this other fish I am interested in is the Spotted Cardinalfish. What do you guys think of it?

Nice looking fish, but not one of my favorites since it just sits there and stares. Doesn't move around much at all ya know.

My vote is the clown goby. Sits in one spot a lot too, but perches on the rock, coral, or glass. Great personality too IMO.

Well If I got the Clown Goby where would it perch. All my rock are covered with corals and you can barely see the rocks. I have alot of xzenia, polyps, and kenya, and other corals and a big clam. Will it swim to the surface when I feed my other fish?. And could I get 2 that were from the same tank.

It'll perch on the coral w/no problem. Also on the front glass, powerheads, rocks, whatever. And yes he will swim to the top for food like the others.

2 might fight if not mated. Consider a bi-color blenny for the 2nd fish maybe. Again, great personality. The bi-color will find a rock to stick his body into and let his head peer out. Really neat fish. And both of these choices are small - maybe 2" max for the blenny. Maybe 1.5" for the goby.

BTW, how are your nitrates? That'll tell you IMO if you should add 1, 2, or no fish.

There should be absolutely no ammonia in the tank. There's a problem if so. Check that reading again, or even have the lfs confirm yours.

Well just did another reading on ammonia and its at 0. I'm using the saltwater Master kit and I must have looked at the wrong color on the color chart befor.
