Jaw fish are pretty aggressive and need bigger tanks.

I like to think of a yellow watchman goby as a poor-mans blue spotted jaw fish.

I wanted a blue spotted jawfish before but I think min tank size is 30 gallons on live aquaria yellow headed jawfish it says min tank size is 10 gallons

But do you think adding any other fish would be too much ?

I have one occy clown and a sharknose goby in my nc12 and I think I'm fully stocked, don't get a jawfish. Either get 2 clowns or 1 clown + some other small fish.

Depending jn your filtration, got for anywhere from 1-3 more small fish. 3 being if you have intense skimming going on, feed carefully, and running all the little goodies you can along with quality live rock.

Also, note that the keyword is SMALL fish ;)
