Hello all!

i just started setting up my new Red sea 170 and got a bicolor blenny already, i also have a Kauderni and two clowns that are waiting te be added in the new tank. I'm not sure what to do, can i ad one more fish or should i leave it and if i can add a fish what are nice community fish as i have no inspiration at the moment. The tank is going to be mostly LPS and some softies, i looked at fish like the sixline rasse and the yellow clown goby but heard not that great stories about them so i came for your help!
Thanks!

Google says a red sea 170 = 34 gallons so what i would be doing is research how many fish can have in there and look like aquaria on different fish that suggested for your tank and look compatability chart at bottom of each fish description.
At a guess 5- 7 small - medium fish but just quick guess but depends how much live rock and other filtration you got for the tank and if can keep nutrients in check as slowly add each fish would be my opinion
