More fish? Help!

I have a question for some of you more experienced ones

I wouldn't mind having a few more fish in my tank. I would like to have another firefish, maybe a tang, and I would love to have another ocellaris clown or two. Any suggestions??

I have:
40g breeder
20-25 lbs live rock
Caulerpa
2 ocellaris clowns
2 blue damsels
1 firefish
1 mandarin goby
1 yellow clown goby
2 hermits (1 small, 1 large)
2 snails (super small)
1 Sebae anemone

Ok well your tank isnt stocked yet so you could probably have 1 maybe 2 more nano fish if you wanted. Out of those 3 options i vote for the firefish. The tang needs a MUCH bigger tank then a 40 gallon. Almost all need a 6' long tank. Also, do NOT get another ocellaris clown. They will exist in pairs, but if you added a third the pair will kill the third one. Overall i think you are almost stocked, and if you got a firefish and maybe 1 more small fish you would be done.

Edit: i corrected my spelling errors..

I agree with this advice 100%. I think your firefish is your best bet. May want to get a few more pounds of live rock as well.

Thank you both so much! Other than the firefish, what else do you recommend?

I would look into the familys or cardinal fish, basslets, blennies, chromis, maybe a small wrasse.

If you want more specific tupes of fish i would suggest a bangaii cardinal, flasher wrasse, six line wrasse, one spot blennie, blue reef chromis, chalk bass/royal gramma.
