Overstocked?

40 gallon tank with skimmer + 15 gallon fuge

2 clarkii's
1 watchman goby
1 fire goby
1 lawnmower blenny


- I wanted to get one more yellow jawfish. Am I okay with that? The clarkii would be the biggest, the others are small/medium size.

I am no salty but I go with swimming room and water perimeters if your fish are not bumping into each other and your water levels are fine I would go for it so many stocking guidelines are flawed you can check out my thread I believe it's called "stocking guidelines"

I wouldn't say so, what are your parameters? A lot will come down to feeding and the waste produced by the fish.

I honestly don't even account bio-load at all. Lol if it doesn't look crowded, it's not, at least for me.
