with a deep sand bed (20lbs crushed coral, 10lbs live sand), 7lb or so cured live rock, plus a couple lbs of live rock rubble in the wet/dry filter. I'm thinking a couple of snails, a hermit crab or 2, and 1 fish, max length 1" or less, that prefers a solitary environment. any thoughts would be appreciated! I'd also like to incorporate some hardy, non-photosynthetic corals into the mix. parameters as follows:
spec. grav 1.023
calcium 200 ppm
hardness was written down when i had it tested at the LFS, then was promptly soaked with sample water on the way home. waiting on my own hardness test kit in the mail.
