I would not say they are harder than blennies, they just need a deeper sand bed, other than that they do not require algae like most blennies do. And they jump but so do blennies.

So nothing above 5-6 inches? Just a bunch of small fish like chromis, cardinals, gobies, blennies, damsels, little schooling fish and stuffs like that?

That sounds like a good stock. You might try a midas blenny as your show fish. They get to be 6" long which is pretty big considering there is a 24" x 24" space to swim. It should be a fairly dominating size fish for that tank.

Personally, I would add snails instead of hermit crabs in a sump. You won't have to deal with supplying extra shells. Also, snails tend to have an easier time getting around than hermits.
