I was thinking about a fresh water 5 gallon

but the salt water sounds pretty cool is there any fish that can fit in my 5 gallon and would I need a filter if I put live rock in

The problem with nano-tanks in saltwater is that there is usually just not enough room for any form of mistake. And that's room almost everyone needs!

If you've never tried saltwater before, I personally would make this 5 a freshwater tank. There's not many fish that can live in such small of an enclosure for freshwater--for saltwater, a few inverts, depending on your light, may work. But overall, it is a lot of work to maintain in a very tiny place.

In the article in the tips section, somebody put a tomato clown in an 8L. So mabye a tomato clown?

A word of warning, I know nothing about SW, just stating what somebody else has told me (and everyone else who read that.)

a tommato would live in a 8l when VERY VERY young full grown they need 100L. mine lives in a 32g and is about 3.5 inches long! its like a human baby will sleep in a small bed and be happy but when it grows it will need a bigger bed or else it will be unhappy. catch my drift

A 5 gallon tank can go into a full fledged reef.I have a 4 gallon reef with a fish and its doing fine(knock on wood) except for some algae.There is almost no room for mistake in a nano-reef.It's easy to keep a fish in a FOWLR 5 gallon tank.Here are some choices...damsels,common clowns and some bobies tht are easy to feed.
