I wouldn't try it. They are a bit more aggressive and you just don't' have the space to take any chances.

I don't think it will make a difference either way. The Banggai Cardinals are one of the easiest of all fish to keep, being mostly captive raised, so it might be smart to add them first.

I went to my lfs and got a heater and sand. I also need to get a my Q tank setup. I have serveral 10 gallon tanks how do I clean them out. Like just water, water and viniger... etc.

On the bright side I have water in my tank. My stand is awesome! The best is my lfs will order in a trio of banggai cardinals in for me! Pics and build thread soon.

I just clean tanks with hot water and a razor blade to scrape the inside glass of any heavy calcium buildup.

For a sand bed, you will want to use 1'' or less, or a depth of 4-6''. I try to avoid anything between 1'' and 4'', as it often causes more harm than good, with detritus accumulation and inefficient denitrification.

Harlequin Shrimp do not live in captivity due to dietary demands.
