    Angelfish, even dwarf angels would need 40g+
    They just swim a lot aND roam and peck at the rock and other stuff.
    Blennys, gobies, and a cpl of the same clowns would b best.

    U can use rock, oornaments from the fish store, they have saltwater sand and crush coral for the bottom.

    I would recommend an all In one set up or a drilled tank with an overflow and sump area for a protein skimmer.
    Welcome and have fun.

    I know it's been a little while but if your still thinking about it I agree with 1guydude. But as far as the last point one of my most rewarding tanks I've had was a 50 gallon breeder that was pretty low tech. I had a power filter, hang on refugium with skimmer, and some T5s and I had a nice soft coral reef for a few years when I upgraded. It was easy to care for and a good begging tank. It didn't cost me to much either as I got it all used ($150 I think). You could probably do a smaller tank for less if you search for a good deal.

    As for fish clowns are always a good choice and I also like fire gobies and cardinal fish. The engineer blenny is also one I've always been fond of.

    Good luck

    Yes, gobies and blennies... the best.
