Stocking a 10g Reef?

I had a few fish in mind and figured I would stop adding at around 2-4 small fish. Question is, which fish could I add?

Right now, I'm sure I'll be getting a Tailspot Blenny and an Ocellaris Clown. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

some typ eof goby would probably work well, rainfords or watchman. 3 fish is probably enough bioload for that tank

There are tons of nano gobies that only get like an inch or so. Some are hard to find, yes, but ask your lfs if they can special order any. You'd have to google them to find the exact names as i cant remember anything besides "trimma" gobies off the top of my head.

Then there's neon gobies, always fun...I'd probably stay away from the rainfords though because they need a lot of sand as i recall..

Nice fish choices!

I have a true perc, tailspot, and neon goby in my 12g and they are all doing fantastic.

Can't go wrong with an ocellaris. The one I have now l've had for seven years. First in a 29, then in a 10 gallon and now temporarily in a NC6.

Thanks, guys. I'll probably just go with some sort of small Goby. Maybe some sort of Clown, Neon, or possibly a Watchman.

Once again, thanks!
