when can I add more fish?

I recently (4 days ago) put 2 clownfish in my new tank which is 50 gallons. I want to add a goby next. How long should I wait to add this fish? Thanks guys........ & gals

That really depends on what size your tank is but assuming the tank was fully cycled and you quarantined the clowns before adding them to the display, at least a month between additions is optimal. This gives the displays filtration system time to adapt to the new bioload and gives you time to research compatible livestock and quarantine the new addition. Patience is the key in this awesome hobby.
