Nano Reef - Advice?

My LFS has a nano cube setup that I've been considering getting when I have the money. I'm not certain, but I THINK it's 12g. It's not as big as my 20g, but it looks bigger than my 10g, so. Anyway.

I've been thinking about getting it, but the problem is, I don't want any fish. Specifically, I want either hermits or shrimp and corals. I can't find any info on setting up non-fish tanks - is it a problem? I love invertebrates (advice on what kind to put in a 12g would be nice!), but I have all the fish I want in my 75g freshwater.

So can reefs be setup without fish? o_o I know everyone has the opposite problem - wanting too MANY fish. I don't want any at all. 8)

Well u can?

But it will be very boring soon you will try to add fish?

12 Gallon is tooo small for even a single fish. u should go atleast for 30 gallon like mine.

I really ... don't want fish. That's what I'm saying. XD I know it won't be the most exciting tank in the world, which is fine - I like the decorative look of corals and the occasional shrimp or crab sighting. It's relaxing. There's a lot of activity in my freshwater tank, which I'm happy with.

A nano reef will be easier without fish. The absence of fish in no way changes the setup or requirements of equipment, lighting, etc.

owo! Those shrimp are AWESOME. I'm definitely getting some of those.

Now to figure out how many shrimp can go in a species tank. They're so cute. XD

Those Sexy Shrimp are small, you can probably put five in a 12 gallon without a huge bioload problem. Look up Harlequin Shrimp too. They get a little bigger than Sexies if I recall correctly. Harlequins do have a special dietary need, though.

They eat Starfish.
