You might have issues with the black sand as all the detritus will show up on it. If you can keep the sand clean you should be ok. I'd suggest to add more rock first before you add anything else. The lr is going to be the best filter you have on that small tank. If you want it to be more open try to get some tonga branch rock. You will really be limited with fish in that tank. As for coral I'd probably stay away from sps but everything else should do fine. some lps like acans and favia might be nice and if you do get some tonga branch rock maybe nice zoanthids to cover the branches.
