[M] Ideas for very small marine tank?

I used to have a 2.5 gallon "micro reef" tank, but it got neglected,
and is not currently running.  I'll probably set it up again in a few
months.  The best thing for a tank this small is to concentrate on
inhabitants that will stay small.  Most clowns would get too big to
live comfortably in a 2.5 gallon tank.

I'd recommend adding more live rock to it, since that will give it
character.  Good inhabitants for a tank that small are small gobies
(neon, catalina, clown), small crabs, shrimp, snails, feather dusters,
starfish, etc.

If you have decent lights on it (and the little fluorescents that 
Osram makes are great for this), you can keep inverts that require
light, such as small anemones, zoanthids, etc.
