Hello everyone! I was wondering what are the best fish for a 30 gallon tank. I currently have a Coral Beauty, a Fire Shrimp, a Goby, an Emerald Crab, and several Snails and Hermit Crabs.

I am planning on adding a clownfish in the future. I am aware i cant add much more but i am looking for maybe 1 or 2 more fish, any suggestions would be much appreciated!


Thanks!

You'd have more options if you re-homed the coral beauty. He'll feel cramped in a 30g and may get stressed which can lead to illness and/or aggression. With him in there I wouldn't add any more fish that share the water column. Small ground dwelling gobies are less likely to make him feel like another fish is encroaching on his territory since they stick to the bottom of the tank, so one of them would be your best option currently.

EDIT: sorry, just remembered you already had a goby!

Also once you add a semi aggressive fish you can't get any peaceful fish
