A pair of clowns. Gobies. Blennies. Cardinalfish. Tangs (normally with 6 ft tanks though). Chromis. Of the top of my head, those are some beginner choices. Some tangs are harder than others to keep even in a 6 ft tank.

I don't know if I have enough room for a 6 ft. tank! I wouldn't mind a "small" tank.

It's harder to keep small tanks especially for a beginner. The bigger the tank more stable it is, if something goes wrong in a small tank its more concentrated whereas in a large tank its more dilute. you should try and go as big as you can and you'll only wish you got a bigger tank anyway, trust me lol

I don't see why not. My first tank was a 20 gallon and had no issues with the size. Had it for about two years. You would just be limited to live stock.

That is true. But with Regular water changes size shouldn't be an issue. Just keep up with maintenance.
