I'd say your overstocked 1-2 small gobies. Try for 20lb of LR bring home 10 put it in see if there's room for more try for 1.5-2lb of LR per gallon. Hermit crabs eat detritus but until you have fish you could just throw in a small amount of mysis for them to eat. You could get a firefish just pick carefully what you get since you can only have 1-2 fish that a tank that size can acomadate.

If she sticks with small gobies, like clown ones I think she can get away with 3 fish in the tank. BUT I don't think you can have multiple clown gobies as they might fight. There are some great nano fish listed here:

Nano Fish

15-20 lbs of rock is a good idea, and yep, just toss in some flake or pellets for the inverts you get, they will be fine with that.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
