Most fish will be fine... Stay away from harlequin shrimp and some triggers may nip at them

When you get it they tend to stay on the glass well mine does at least but if you have rock stacked and there's a small gap it'll try to get through it mine got stuck once so just watch that kind of stuff

Our hermit crab didn't do well with the star fish, he eventually killed them.

It was probably just cleaning up a dying starfish. Chocolate chip will eat coral so if you do want a reef eventually you will need to rehome it. Otherwise they are pretty easy to care for.
