Oh, and cody, you said clownfish would be ok in a 10 gallon, but I thought they needed a minimum of 30g
Just one point. Regardless of what type of tank you want, the basics of how to maintain the proper water chemistry do not change. You want an aragonite sand bed, live rock, and a protein skimmer. This will be the basics of every marine aquarium you set up, regardless of size. (For aquariums under 20 gallons, activated carbon could be used instead of a protein skimmer, assuming regular water changes.)
Ok, I did some research and certain kinds of clownfish need bigger tanks than others. What do you think about a 10 gallon with a small clownfish, and a damsel of some sort?
Astreas are great for Veggie matter. I would get 5.
Nassarius are great for eating up leftover food, and stay in the sand. I would get 2.
Ceriths and Nerites are nice also.
The only time they should get eaten is if you introduce non-reef safe fish/inverts, or have hermits that don't have extra shells to switch into.

Firefish are great, you could get one.
CC Star are terrible. They will attack fish, corals, and inverts.
Hermits are not needed are are just lazy 90% of the time. Fun to watch, though.
Good call on the goby.
Be sure to not add any fish untill 2-3 months AFTER the cycle. CUC goes first. Second fish is 8+ months in.
I would suggest just a single Yellow Tail or Blue Damsel, along with a few hermit crabs and snails. Add 6 or 7 pounds of NICE QUALITY live rock and you will have a very fun display that is full of life. Great for a 10 gallon. Add a small hang on filter with activated carbon and you are set.
