I thought firefish gobys did best by themselves... they get highly aggressive when kept with similar or the same species.
Fire gobies (Nemateleotris species) are fine in groups and how I always keep them. Even in the shop we had groups of 10-20 and they always hung out together around the same rock. No fights, no arguments, just hanging out chillin together.

I have never mixed different species so I'm not sure about mixing different species of Nemateleotris together but certainly having a couple of the same species is fine.

Wow. Is their a fish that is not so expensive. Let me remind you that I only have $250 to spare. That includes buying a tank, rock, sand, heater, etc.

Regular ocellaris clownfish are only $15 each.

When you say regular, do mean the orange and black one? I really wanted the white one.
Yes, they look like this:

The “white ones” widely vary in cost, depending on the pattern.

Depending on where you get it, it can be from $80-$140/each. Definitely not a budget fish...

Used to have yellow gobies, they just hung around on top of the rocks watching me. So I wouldn't class them as bottom dwelling. Clowns tend to be OK with other fish until they start to breed, then the will defend their patch and the eggs

Those are Grade A DaVinci Clownfish, which usually run about $80+ for each fish.

They are technically bottom dwellers, as that's where they spend the majority of their time. ;)
