Stock wise for this too I'd maybe look at gobies, firefish jawfish, you could maybe get away with one of the smaller anglers but it would be on its own or I saw on live aquaria about a Pygmy wrasse which could be cool

Been thinking my 60L with 15kg of live rock 2 powerheads one either side pointing into the rock and a TMC V2 80 nano skimmer along with my HOB.

Stock would be 2 clown fish and a starfish does this sound reasonable ?

I might be wrong, but I think 60L is about 15g. 2 clowns in a 15g tank wouldn't be ideal IMO. There are other very cute and colorful fish that would work though. A Firefish (either purple or red), some of the smaller blennies, and clown goby, just to name a few. If you're very good about weekly PWCs, you could do 3 nano fish in there. I would do 2 fish if you're not so good about weekly pwcs. Check liveaquaria.com and look in the SW nano fish section.

I have 2 tropical and a cold water tank that im very strict with i do 20% water change twice a week every week. My other question was about keeping water salinity correct, my LFS sells pre mixed saltwater that id use for water changes could i just keep topping up with normal RO water to compensate for evaporation then do a straight change with the saltwater to keep salinity correct or would it change?

That's the right way to do it: top offs with RO, PWCs with SW.
