I don't know of any brands for chillers, but they do cost quite a bit, and they only make a couple of degrees difference, iirc.

As for the power heads, I have a Hydor Koralia Nano in my tank and it's great. It has dispersed flow, which is great. I'd suggest buying a Koralia 2.

Mike:

I really dont like the idea of the pistol shrimp. I had thought of a skunk or peppermint shrimp which the pistol will definitely kill. I do like the idea of the blue legged crab and the snails.

Now on the topic of crabs...is there any way to provide them with bigger shells once they outgrow theirs?

Also...if i have too many cleanup crew wont they eventually die off from lack of food?

With lets say 6 scarlet reef hermit crabs (Paguristes cadenati), 6-10 nassarius snails (Nassaurius vibex) and about 6 blue legged dwarf hermits (Clibanarius tricolor), would that be overdoing it with the cleanup crew if skunk shrimps (Lysmata amboinensis) are also present? I dont want to make the mistake of over stocking seeing I still need to add the coral and fishes.

Matt:

That Hydor Koralia Pumps 2 sounds about right. So in essence once i have the heater, rock, sand and pump the only thing that might be missing is a thermometer and a hydrometer? Oh yeah the test kit as well:)
