    In my biocube 29 I currently have
    2x ocellaris clowns
    1x yellow watchman goby

    I want to add one more fish for a grand total of 4 fish. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe a cardinal or wrasse or chromis.....????

    those can get very aggressive, you have alot of options really matt, you could do a cardinalfish, maybe you could get a dwarf angel if you want to risk it. its 100 percent up to you.

    I'm kinda digging the dwarf angel idea since the only Lps I really plan to keep is euphyllia(I read they don't pick at these). If not that then maybe a pajama cardinal...

    That cherub angel suggestion is a good one. They're really docile, and won't outgrow the tank. And it'll add a nice splash of color to the tank.

    A small fairy wrasse would be good. They are docile. I would stay away from a sixline though as they can become monsters in small tanks. A Pygmy wrasse could be a good option also.

    well in my opinion if you dont go with a slightly larger fish like a dwarf angel, you could probably fit a couple smaller fish in there, maybe a cardinal and a hawkfish. you only have 3 fish in there now and not many corals youve got plenty of room.
