I'm no expert, but as far as stocking is concerned, I'd say you can have 4-5 fish as long as they're nano-fish and non-aggressive species. I'd say you can have a pair of small clownfish, a firefish, a green chromis, and a type of nano goby, like a yellow clown goby.

Saltwater people, am I right? =]

as far as equipment this is a pretty good stock list for what hardware you'll need

Of course what I said isn't your only option, it was just one of many stocking options. =] If there's a certain fish you like, then you can ask about it and the people on here can tell you if it's a good choice for your setup.

Definitely. There are many, many fish that can't live happily in a small tank like yours, every species of tang is included in that. Each individual fish will need to be researched before you decide you can put it in.
