What fish can i put

Have a 29 gal tank with plenty of base rock. I have a blue damsel, a powder blue and 3 snails. Any suggestions on new fish to add and how many should I put into this size tank?

I wouldnt add any until you rehome your tang to someone with a tank large enough for it. Then i will give you some good fish suggestions

Is my tank not big enough? He seems really happy flying around the rocks and eating very well

Tangs need like 6' tanks to swim... Or they will stress!

There are a few Tangs that can do smaller (in the 60-75 ballpark), but none will work long term in less. I believe it is more an issue with what is good for them, more than their ability to survive. There are a lot of sites out there that show info on various fish...blueZoo, vivid aquariums, live aquaria.com You will see differences in suggested sizes (Liveaquaria tends to go larger than the others), but it should provide a safe ballpark for required tank sizes.
