It depends on the fish, in salt water. There is no inches per gallon rule that can be used here.
What fish are you considering? Tangs are out of the question, as are the larger angels. A pigmy angel may work, as will clownfish (except for the larger ones).

Your tank is WAY too small for a tang. You should do a lot more research online as to fish that would be good for that size tank before setting your hopes too high. As well, depending on the species of blue devil you have, that too may be way too small for that tank.

No to anthias, and yes to clown goby.
Nano Fish
Any of those fish will work, as well as some from the main salt water area on that site. Just check minimum tank sizes and also the fish in question's full grown size before purchase.
Absolutely no tangs in a 35 gallon tank. They will eventually be stressed to the point of lowering their immune system and start failing. Ich, or some other disease will take them.

blue devils are very aggressive fish and need lots of swimming room
