Hello guys, I'm new to the saltwater world, and I would love to hear some suggestions about which fish should I put in my tank, I already have a pair of clownfish and a shy juvenile yellow watchman goby (hoping he gets a lil bit more brave as he grows, if you have any experience with that fish, tell me as well). I would like to introduce 2 more small fishes, thought about fridmani and yellow tail damsel, but I heard that the damsel could not work out with the clownfish. Help me please :D

Your experiences will vary. Mine with the YWG is it’s a very shy fish. Mine is 2 years old (from previous owner) and will come out but mostly hides.
I have a yellow tail damsel in my pico tank, he’s got to be even more shy than my YWG but he’s new to the tank and I’ve had very aggressive damsels in the past.

I have no experience with the fridmani but it’s a beautiful fish. Perhaps a couple fire fish or cardinal fish?

Yeah, I would like to have a contrast of colors, but also fishes with good personality to watch.
Firefish is excellent idea, but cardinal I dont know :/

i'd go for a more peaceful damsel like a springeri or a rolland's. just my 2 cents.

and my ywg hides most of the time but comes out for food. but sometimes he will dart around and he has quite a personality. my firefish is shy too. kinda wish i had gotten something more active. my firefish only comes out of her cave for food. i'd get something with more movement. have you considered a dwarf angel or maybe a small wrasse?

That is what Im afraid of, stocking with too shy fishes. I love ywg, but I would love to see him more and Im afraid to get that feeling with another blenny or goby, like firefish, never considered an wrasse or dwarf angel, what's ur suggestion? I love the blue in the yellow tail damsel, but Im afraid to put it together with a pair of ocellaris..
