You'll be able to do fish in it, asking as you keep up with the water changes.
Water changes aren't an issue for me especially in such a small tank, I wouldn't mind doing them daily or every other day. What fish do you have in yours? Do you keep any corals and inverts or anything?

A scooter blenny will need a larger tank than a 7 for more then one reason but the biggest being over time they slowly starve since they forage for copepods 24/7 just like the mandarin they are dragonettes and require a large pod population that can sustain the strain of a dragonette. If you can get one to eat prepared foods you are very lucky but they may revert back at any time so you'll have to seed with pods which can cost $20 a bottle and last a day or two....
