A small Power Compact would do just fine. I have one that's only 13". Coralife makes a 12" and a 24" version..

you would be well advised to take out the blue hippo. a small one needs at least 40 gallons and once it grows up it will need at least 150 gallons

three fish might be to much for that tank with just a couple pounds of live rock if your not careful it will crash

"twice the number of fish it should have they are going to die"

It's pretty challenging, especially tackling the NO2, Ammonia, PH, Salinity etc.

Atm. I'm doing daily checking on these, since i dun have a sump or canister to house the biological substance.

Id have to agree. But, you sound like you are doing great on watching the params, so I'm not going to tell you something you already know. But, I'm sure you know that you cant keep all of these guys permantley, espically that Tang (will require a bare minimum of 75G).
