TONS of people get into this hobby thinking it's easy as pie. Why do you think so many people flock to this website knowing nothing about stocking, cycling, parameters, illness, etc.? Because they think you just throw fish in a tank and you're done. There are certainly people that will quit as soon as they encounter issues.

then in my opinion its a good thing they get out of the hobby if they don't take the time to research, save more fish from your neglagence to care and research

In a 2.5 there are a few fish that could go into it but you would need it done right... they are gobies that grow to a maximum size of 3/4"-1" they are cute active and can do well in a nano tank as long as you have enough small pieces of LR.

I know that this isn't about this thread so much but I just wanted to straiten that out even though we have moved past it.

Candycane gobies are beyond tiny. Not sure they are even big enough for this tank. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
