Yes, even one clown and one damsel is way too big for this tank. It's much better suited for one clown goby or one trimma goby or something along that size. I'll start a thread on mine right away. When I can find one I want to put a Flaming Prawn Goby in mine.
Make sure you do very frequent water changes(bi-weekly) and don't slack on top ups(must be done daily). Things can go very wrong very fast in such a small system.

Ya i was warned about alot of water changes on such a small tank, i love the fluval spec for its filter system tho and the flow rate on the pump it has

How well do the specs lid prevent evap. losses ...if it was good enough 2 small water changes a week could be all you need to top it up as well
