What should I get next?

My 29gal has been running successfully since the end of August with a blue-green chromis and an ocellaris clown, so I figure it's fine to add a couple more fish slowly.

I think I want another clown so they can form a pair, and I know chromis prefer groups but I'm open to going in any direction with new additions. So far I've only really looked at a Kaudern's Cardinal. What do you guys suggest I pick up?

I haven't really seen the need for one so all I have in there right now is one nassarius snail and a turbo/astraea for algae.

Get a Coral Banded Shrimp, They look pretty cool and will do a little cleaning around the tank.

I would suggest a Bi-Colored Blennie, or a Small Gobie maybe an Orange Spot Gobie or a Bluespot Jawfish would be a good addition to your tank...

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I'm leaning towards getting a Banggai and possibly another clown soon, and then probably some form of a goby (neons look cool) and shrimp sometime later. I really want a mandarin but I've heard they are reaally picky eaters and do better in larger tanks so I decided against it.

Just another question, none of the pet stores nearby carry any of these kinds of fish. The one I usually visit only has clowns, damsels, and common fish of that type. I visited the other one that had a large variety in the past and they seemed to have either run out of stock or downsized their marine section. The main thing about buying online is the shipping, which will probably end up costing more than the actual fish. What are your experiences with getting your LFS to order fish for you?

I am a little hessitant about adding another clown in a tank that small. Make sure if you do that the clown is the same and must be way smaller or way larger for them to pair but they might not pair up either way. No guarantee

Thanks for the heads up melosu. My LFS had a separate tank with two juvenile SA Fancy clowns other than the one I bought (the one I already have). I will see if they still have more and will definitely make sure I can return in case it doesnt work out.
