I don't know of any fish that would be suitable for a tank that size. The biggest thing is keeping the SG steady along with keeping ammonia and nitrates down. I know people that have put damsels in a tank that size but to me that is trying to live 24 hours a day 7 days a week in my closet. You could do a pom pom crab or sexy shrimp.

Neon goby would work.

I had a green clown goby in my 4g pico and that was pushing it. I would get liek a whole bunch of inverts. pompoms, sexy shrimp, golden coral banded shrimp, maybe a small fire shrimp, some neat hermit crabs....there's a bunch of cool inverts to get. And if the lights good enough you can always do low light corals

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

A single neon goby would probably work, though not unlike Carey I think that inverts are better suited for a pico.
