You may have to feed the lawnmower blenny seaweed if your tank doesn't have enough algae to sustain him. Otherwise the stocking list is fine.
By the way, I traded that neon dottyback in because he started nioping at my cleaner shrimp and cardinalfish. I got the lawnmower blenny for it.

Just keep an eye on him. If there's not enough algae in the tank to sustain him, you'll have to supplement his diet with seaweed, etc.

The clown may be aggressive to the damsel as they come from the same family just separate genera.

It’s hard to say whether or not the clown will accept the springer or whether the springer will accept the clown. It’s even harder to say if it will work out without seeing the rock structure.

I've never ever seen my clownfish be aggressive to anything but I'll keep an eye out

They bite. No really, they're known to bite the hands that feed them...
Yeah, My clownfish Esmerelda bites me during regular maintainence. But she never ever shows aggression to the fish that are activley in her territory. Its wierd.

Agreed. My son has a blue velvet damsel and a pair of clowns in a Biocube, but we made sure the scape has a cave and swim throughs for the damsel. Zero aggression in 6 years.

The clown was aggressive for about an hour then left it alone since. When can she learn to leave my hand alone XD

I have an ocellaris clown and 3 yellow tail damsels and they have been together quite a while now. There are quick harmless skirmishes but no real aggression. My tank is bigger 56 gallon however with a fair amount of rock and 7 other fish, which could be an influence too.
