On another note. I have my hermit crabs; ive read contradicting reports of keeping hermit crabs and turbo snails together. Hoping someone can give me a good answer. Can i get some turbo snails? :D
I have all of these except the green Mandarin and they're good easy fish. I think they're really cool personally. All peaceful. Only thing to note is just get one of the chromis...they'll chase each other and you'll end up with one. Happened to me with mine. As far as the jumpers, my firefish jumped once...out of the bag I bright him home in and into my tank. The goby on the other hand if startled dings off the light and back into the tank. This is only at night though. Oddly enough my flame angel is the one I worry about. He jumped right out into the floor one day. Any way I think you can get clear net covers from bulk reef supply that will bounce any jumpers back in but still leave your tank open.
My clean up crew consists of a handful of hermits, 4 nassarius snails, three astrea snails and a couple nerite(I think that's what they're called) snails. You can also get cleaner shrimp that will help but you have to be careful when mixing certain species. Definitely stay away from large crabs (i.e. Emerald crabs) as they will eat anything easy like corals. Posted via Mobile Device
