Yellow Watchman or Royal Gramma?

I am trying to decide on which fish to add to my 14 biocube. I would like to have both but I do not want to overstock my tank, so I can only have one. Right now I have a dominant ocellaris. Which fish would make the best addition to the tank? Yellow Watchman or Royal Gramma?

125g cichlid - 14g biocube reef - 6g planted Edge - 20g L goldfish/African Clawed Frog

i personally would go with the yellow watchman and actually get a randalli pistol shrimp so the 2 can pair up. i would then say thats it for fish until you upgrade.

the RG can be territorial esp in a small tank.

What is the Yashia Gobys personality like? Is it similar to a firefish?

i never kept a firefish so i wouldnt know but then again ive never kept the yasha ive always wanted one. my best educated guess would be that it has a similiar personality to other watchman gobies

I used to have a purple firefish but I had to rehome him because he could not deal with the ocellaris' bossiness. It would have to be tougher than a firefish, as firefish seem to be pretty wussy. It would have to be a fish with the type of personality to stick up for itself. That is why I asked, just in case that seemed to be an odd question to ask.

Royal grammas get fairly big for that small of a tank. Mine is constantly swimming around my 90. I'd go for the watchman and a pistol shrimp.

They get no bigger then a clown... and they get the same size (I know that not all fish read the same books we do) so i don't see what the diff would be.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
