5g Fluval spec saltwater

Hi I have decided to give a shot at starting a saltwater aquarium. So for my aquarium I chose a 5 gallon fluval spec V. I was wondering if I could put fish in it as I have seen some 5gallons with an ocelaris clownfish and a misbar percula I have also seen one with an true percula clownfish and a fire fish along with a fire shrimp and a striped skunk shrimp. In my aquarium right now I have a Pom Pom crab an Astraea snail and as for corals I have a trumpet coral, ricordea mushroom, Kenya tree, green star polyp, and some mystery coral

Clownfish get to large for long term in a 5 gallon. Really most fish aren't too happy in a 5 gallon. I'd look at neon gobies or a clown goby.

Yah clown and neon gobys are probably ideal I'm just not to fond of those two fish

I was thinking maybe a striped clingfish but others have said they are difficult to take care of but it would be one of the only animals in my tank

I have no experience with them. You can probably get away with a single 1-2" max size fish and some inverts. There are several gobies that will work.
