Ocellaris for 10 gallon?

Hello, I currently have a 10 gallon FOWLR that has been running for about 3 months now. In it I have a yellow clown goby, 3 hermits, 5 margaritas, 1 bumblebee snail, and 3 nassarius snails and so far, all have been doing fine. I was thinking about getting an ocellaris but am a bit hesitant as my aquarium is small and i don't want to overload it. Should I get one or just leave the tank as it is?

They need a 20 gallon minimal. 10 Gallon is two small.

If you want some more fish, I would go with this list. Fire fish are cool! Oh and don't get sea horses even if they are on the list. (Expert Only, very hard to keep!)

Nano Fish

The clean up crew is good, so I would maybe go with 3 fish total, but only from the nano list. Here is what the Ocellaris requires.

I figured it would be small. I was thinking of getting a firefish but i'm afraid it will jump from my tank since it is not covered.

Just get pound netting. It works great and you can cut to size!

Hello!

Here are some "Possum" Wrasses I found on LiveAquaria.com:
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Yellow Banded Possum Wrasse
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: White Banded Possum Wrasse, Wetmorella albofasciata

.....here is one that does not have "Possum" in it's name but appears similar:
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Tanaka's Pygmy Wrasse, Wetmorella tanakai

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm deciding whether to get a possum wrasse or a fire fish. It's pretty hard since they are both cool fish.

I'd go with the possum wrasse. Neon gobies are another option.

I thought you couldn't mix species of gobies in smaller tanks

I didn't see the part about the clown goby. Sorry, my mistake.
