a five gallon is pretty small. Any fish you could keep would have to be 1" or less full grown. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is the yellow clown goby

Get a mantis shrimp and some corals. That would be pretty neat tank.

10-12 for a nano is the common min size, however anything IMO 30 gallons or less is a nano

20 gallon is a nice size. Not to big, not to small.

in a 12 i would recomend one of the following - damsel, chromis, royal gramma, perc (preferibly one that does not like pairs such as the maroon), watchmen goby.

in a twelve i could see 2 small reef gobies such as the citron, clown, clown, neon, ranisford (court jester).

I have a small clown goby in a 5 gal mini bow. Other than that though it is just a few shrooms and gsp. Invertabrates would be all that I put in now.
