Fluval Edge nano reef

So I've had this fluval edge I bought months ago for a dwarf puffer tank, but I just got an idea. My girlfriends birthday is next month and she really likes saltwater tanks. I was just wondering what options I would have for saltwater fish. Believe me I understand it's very limited, with freshwater it's super limited as well. Being that I'm completely clueless with saltwater tanks, I figured I'd post here and see what the possibilities are. Any info would be appreciated.

Oh also would I be able to seed this tank with my freshwater tank, or are the BBs different?

Nope freshwater bb is differant then saltwater. How big is the tank? Anything under 15 g shouldnt have a clown, and i know thats probably a fish you want. Just so you know, a small saltwater tank is probably one of the hardest tanks to care for.

The fluval edge is 6gs. I don't really have a huge interest in saltwater at all, but every time I goto the LFS with my girl she drools over saltwater tanks lol. So as far as stocking goes, it doesn't really matter to me, I'm just wondering what options I might have, if any. If the saltwater doesn't work out, a dwarf puffer tank would be cool as hell (and my girl really likes them too, so it would be ok).

I should add this tank has been up for about a year and never lost a fish or coral

It is risky an difficult to keep fish alive in a small tank like that, especially for someone who has zero experience in saltwater. Only very experienced saltwater fish-keepers like marquis should try it IMO.
