You have quite a selection to choose from as far as fish. 30g is a good starting size in my opinion.

You can get a pair of clowns of course, and maybe 2 other fish of normal size. No tangs or anything crazy but you have some room to work with.

here is a link for some SW fish, it will have their needs listed and tank size required.

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

My personal favorite are the koralias. They have a suction cup AND magnet to make sure they dont fall. Here's a link for them

Thats about average price for them, you might do a little better on ebay but thats up to you.

Anyone have experience with basic damsels and clowns ? I've read that damsels can be quite overbearing ..

If at all possible you might wanna pass on the damsels. They are cheap, pretty and hardy but alot of people have issues with their aggressiveness. They can take over a tank. lol

Clowns are still damsels, but they are alot more mellow, especially if you get a regular oscellaris rather than, say, a maroon one.

People do seahorses, they just need a very specific type of tank. i believe they need extra clean water and low flow and need to be fed live food. Theres been some build threads on them, just very challenging
