20 gallon stocking help
I have had my 20 gallon tank up and running with 2 false clowns, a firefish goby, a cleaner shrimp, some snails and crabs, a green bubble tip (may be getting rid of), and a small frag of polyups. I was thinking of adding a final fish being a flame angle fish or a hawk fish. I am leaning more toward the flame angle since the hawk fish may fight with the goby and cleaner shrimp? Would either one of these fish be too much for the tank? I do 5 gallon water changes weekly without fail and all my params are closely watched. There is about 30lbs of live rock and live sand in the tank.

neither would be a good choice for the size youve got, the flame and hawk are both territorial, moderately fragile and need at least 30g of space..
Personally, id leave your tank as it is and dress it with coral and take out the anemone...___________________________________________
