I'd agree that the four fish should be stocked. Unless you would like to add tiny fish, like a clown goby or a yellow watchman goby. Just have to keep up on the water changes and you should be fine.

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

I will do 2-3g wc once every 2 weeks, or should i do it once a week? I like the idea of the watchman so i guess that will be my stock.

I'd start with weekly and go from there. You may be able to go biweekly but you have to make sure your parameters dont suffer. That will depend on how much you feed and general maintenance on the tank.

I will be adding live rock from another tank and will gradually stock after everyone goes through QT. i will start with the clowns, then the H.bass, then a tailspot or combtooth blenny, and then the goby. I will do 3g weekly wc then.

Might frag some mushrooms from my other tank and stick them in here, they are taking over all my zoas on that same rock lol. I have some old lights i can use so i guess you could call it a reef. Do you guys think a skimmer is needed for such a small tank?

No nem will survive under those lights. Well a tube anemone would but it would eat your clownfish lol.

Too small for fairy wrasses, look at a possum wrasse if you want a wrasse.
