I wouldn't get Sexies in this tank, because IMO, they need to be in specie-only tanks. And, you need to have them in groups. However, they could be a possiblilty.
I would do this livestock list if I were you.
-1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimp
-3 Astrea Snails
-1 Nassarius Snail
-2 Blue-Legged Hermit Crabs (If you want).
If you want Sexies, then 3 might work. They produce little bioload, so that isnt a problem. My only concern would be them being with a Skunk Cleaner or Hermits.
What would the hermits/skunks do to them? Mostly all I've read on their behavior is that you have to watch out for them being preyed upon, not the other way around. Would they get territorial, or what?
I'm really excited to get skunks, because I've seen them in the LFS and they're beautiful.
I can't thank you guys enough for the help, I feel pretty confident to go out and start amassing equipment to put together this tank now. Thank you!
