We (I as in myself) work on the calculation that for every fish you have, 22lt of water is allocated per fish....

OCELLARIS: Remember to go with ADULT fish sizes bud :)

In your tank, i'd say 2 clowns (occ or perc), a lawnmower blenny and a chromis would be cool

No problem, and regards to your previous question, yes, you can have your 04 fish and goggas, but remember that your bioload for your tank will be a bit high (Something Alan taught me and he is right. I saw it in my tank)

you may get a few dwarf hermits, as well as a few snails, and a couple of shrimp.

As for fish, i would say 4 is a good number.

good luck
