Looking for a small peaceful fish

In my 30 gallon I have 2 1" inch blue/green chromis and 1 1 and 1/4" Clownfish. I want to get a fourth thats small and that will fit the bio load and also colorful. So far I am eyeing the Royal Gramma. Any have any ideas?

I love my roal gramma, that would be a good option. A purple firefish would also work.

A purple pseudochromis would be OK.

Actually six line wrasses can be quite aggressive. A lot of people consider them pound for pound the most aggressive wrasse you can get.

Also my royal gramma terrorizes my damsel... she may be a freak but she's definitely a bully!

I would suggest a jawfish if you aren't at risk of him being crushed if he burrows under live rock, a goby of some type, a firefish, or there are even some cardinals (cardinal #1, cardinal #2) that can go into smaller tanks, according to LiveAquaria.

Little goby would fit in nicely.
Neon Blue
Clown

Several diff ones that dont get much more then 2" and still add color to the tank.

I was going to suggest the same... a yellow clown goby. Adds color and hardly adds to the bioload.

A mated pair of neon gobies would be nice, but I'm also liking the clown goby choice since it'll give you color and habitat(ing) variety. The clowns and chromis will hang out in the tank - the clowns in one area, the chromis all over, and the clown goby will perch on rocks and the front glass IME. He'll swim too, but will be seen mostly perching somewhere.

Not a jumper like the firefish. Not a potential meanie like the pseudochromis (which also isn't as hardy IME) or wrasse.

Six lines can be feisty but as long as it was the last fish added should pose no problems. Mine was fine with a gramma and a pygmy angel.

Given the colors of the fish that you have, the gramma would be nice, or the clown goby. But any of the fish mentioned would be fine, see what your LFS has that looks good!
