food storage container with a hole on each end to keep water flowing will work really good...

well the skimmer seems to be working, the reason i say this is because i see dried skimmate on the inside of the skimmer cup. and the cycleing process seems to be comming to a close so hopefully i can get more money and start buying some lil critters

i want snails but idk what kind. i do know i want:
3-5 hermits of various types def dwarf hermits tho there so cute.
either a skunk cleaner shrimp or a fire shrimp or both
a sand sifting star fish or other starfish recommendations are welcome
maybe a sexy shrimp but i do know they are kinda high maintenance
and probably an arrow crab

As far as your CUC... are you planning on making the tank a reef? If so there are only certain starfish that are reef compatible... common ones like the chocolate chip are not reef safe.

Also beware having hermit crabs and snails together... every snail I had in my 65g got killed by the crabs. I had 2 large turbos and 4 narcissus snails. In my 10g there are 2 crabs and 1 GIANT turbo snail so this isnt the case 100% of the time, but keep an eye out! IMO Turbo's clean REALLY well and get around fast. The narcissus snails were pretty lazy.

i like what you are thinking personally .. i have heard many issues with crabs but have not had any issues myself so be careful and buy cheep so you dont waist money LOL:)
as for stars i would let things mature for awhile before getting one... i made that mistake and it did not end well.... but i do like sand sifters and brittles when the time comes.....

i would avoid linkia and green brittle starfish in this size tank. the sand sifter may not do to well either as its only 20 gallons. a few nassariuos (sp?) snails would do a fine job keeping the sand stirred. i think a trio ( 3 ) sexy shrimp would be great. i would also pick only one of the cleaners, either a skunk or a fire, not one of each.

okay i love the seggustions as for the cleaner shrimp i love the fire shrimp. but i want one that will do the job the best and wont cause any tank problems. the crab situation my local reef store has tons of HUGE snails and tons of itty bitty tiny dwarf crabs and there both cheap so i think ill be fine with those. and tank gurl thanks for the help with the pics ill try uploading them tonight once my drugs wear off ( getting my wisdom teeth removed today DX) oh and i do plan on making it a reef tank i only want to keep softies and lps for the time being maybe like 4 years later ill attempt some sps in a diff tank
