i have a 25 gallon tank with 35 lbs of live rock currently in tank is a yellow tail damsel and 3 green chromis. im thinking about taking the chromis out and donating them to a bigger tank.
i was wondering what kinds of fish i could put in there with the yellow tail, i was thinking a clown, a purple pseudochromis, and some kind of gopie or blenny.
is this too many, r they good tank mates?

A clown wouldn't work since they are also a species of damsal.
You can do some type of goby or blenny, like a yellow watchman goby, firefish goby or bi-color blenny, and the pseudochromis. I would also suggest a falco hawkfish. They are neat looking fish with tons of personality, just add it last because they can become agressive

You should be fine to put a clown in with the yellow tail. I have both in my tank and they don't even notice each other. Keep in mind that the damsel will get meaner as it ages. If it is more than a year old, you might want to put it in the bigger tank and leave the chromis in the 25g. As far as the clown, try to get a more aggressive specis like a skunk, maroon etc. Hate to say it but Nemo is a wimp!100g Reef
