Hey everyone, I have an update. I finally got live rock put in, just waiting for it to cycle now, here are some pics. What are some cool shrimps and little critters i can put inside as a cleaning crew?

In the third picture i really like the rock on the bottom right. It literally is a sphere. Its really amzing the way rocks are formed. Probbaly the best thing is picking out the rocks for your tanka dn then building it :)

I would go with

5-10 Hermits
5-10 Snails
1 Skunk Cleaner shrimp
or
1 Peppermint Shrimp (less $$)
The one thing about the peppermint is it ate my friends Zoo Polyp[/img]

Excellent setup, the aquascaping is fantastic, it looks great now that it's cleared.

Your clean up crew is what will be stocked first after several weeks.

10 hermits, 4 or 5 Astreas, 3 or 4 Nassarius and either a peppermint shrimp (which supposedly eat aiptasia) or a skunk cleaner, or blood shrimp. If they do well, after a week or so, you can add coral. :D

Dang it all, i just tested the salt levels and there is way to much salt in the water. Im gonna have to take water out and add water without the salt.

I was going to ask, what kind of fish is the oen that lives with the shrimp, they are like a tag team special, one digs and the other protects? :D

As was said, watchman gobies and pistol shrimp.

I really enjoyed watching them in my 7g nano when I had it up and running.
