The term "hardy" is up for debate at times, so lets set some parameters. To answer this question, I would have to assume that you have a properly set up system, with aragonite sand, live rock, a protein skimmer, adequate water movement, and proper lighting. Given this assumptions, lets move on.

For fish I would stick with small fish and avoid any fish that require much swimming space. You do not want a Tang in a tank such as this, if "hardy" is what you are after. Keeping this easy, you would want to look at Clownfish, Gobies, Blennies, Pseudochromis, and possibly a single Centropyge angelfish species, such as the Coral Beauty Angel or Flame Angel.

When it comes to inverts, a few small crabs, snails, and a shrimp should prove easy in such a setup.
