My 29g cube has about 50lbs of rock and 30lbs of sand. it holds exactly 18g of water.

I couldn't even begin to do the math LOL

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

Not sure on yours, but I have around 15lbs or so of rock and 30lbs of sand with less than 10G of water left.

I'll let you know again when I move and only have 15lbs of sand

Sure you could. I would get gobies because you could have more. Small gobies that is. Clowns get and are aggressive. So if you get one or two that will be all you can have. As time goes on they get more territorial. I have 2 in my 29g and they have killed every other fish I have added over the past 2 years.
