Most would say that you need 1.5-2 gallons of Live Rock per gallon, but as long as your rock is highly porous (lots of holes=more surface area for benificial bacteria to grow) and with the really low stock list, I think you'll be just fine. Post pics when you're up and running.

I honestly think that you should only get as much LR as you want to make your tank looks nice. I have about 80 pounds of LR in a 40g and it's just enough to make it look nice and yet I have about 50 pounds in my 75g.

Live rock does help out with filtration

I think your stock list looks good.
You can most likely add another small fish as well.

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