Your wishlist won't last long in a tank that small. Damsels require 30 gallon tank ( I got away with one in a 20 gallon). Firefish requires 10 gallon as does the clown goby. That Damsel will kill those fish, especially in a tank that small.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Clown Goby, Citrinis

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Firefish, Purple

Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Reef Aquariums: Yellowtail Damselfish

Okay no damsel. But a clown goby and purple firefish should be alright. If not what could go in it?

Fish for a 2g tank??? None. One shrimp, and a mushroom, thats about it.

No, they won't.
You have to look at the difference between a 10g, with rock and substrate, now its 4-5 gallons. Yours is only going to be a drink of water that fish will be in.

I know people keep clown gobies in tanks as small as 1 gallon- allthough i DO NOT reccommend that. I think one yellow clown goby would be fine in the 5 gallon, but that's the only fish. I also like pom pom crabs, nassarius snails, peppermint shrimp and sexy shrimp. Those should all work! Unless you allready have the 5 i would get a 10 instead though. The shrimp goby really needs to be moved to a 10 gallon, not a 5. Good luck, and thanks for the suggestions!

He's upgrading to a 5 gallon. The fish I reccommended are for the 5 gal.
