Biocube stocking question

I recently picked up an established 29 gallon biocube and was wonder on if I could maybe add a couple more fish to it.

It currently has 2 clown loaches , a blenny and a gobi as well as 4 or 5 hermit crabs and 4 or 5 snails. Is there enough room to add a couple more fish? I would really like to put a couple yellow tangs if I was able to do so.

This is my first saltwater tank so I don't want to screw things up if I can avoid it. Thanks for the help.

29 gallons is too small for any tangs. Sorry, but they will not thrive in that space and even worse get sick and infect the other tank inhabitants.

Thanks , Great to know. Like I said I am new to the saltwater world.

Can you give any suggestions of a bright and colorful species that I could add to what I currently have. Maybe something that would not spend all of its time hiding in the rocks?

Thanks again , great site here with lots of help.

Yes 6 line would be too big for 14 gallon, and I might be being stupid but aren't clown loach fresh water fish?
