Olive Snails. I love answering my own questions.

Tank is looking well.

Corals seem to be bouncing back.

My pistol shrimp keeps taking the spare hermit crab shells I put in the tank!

Thinks are looking like a good start.

So the war between my pistol shrimp and hermit crabs ended with a victory for the Pistol Shrimp. Scarlet Reef was found dead this morning and the Blue Legs are minimal.
Picked up 12 astrea snails though! Got rid of one Olive Snail waiting for the other two to surface so I can remove them too.

At first he was just taking the spare shells for his burrows... Then I guess he took the hermits with their shells too...

My Pistol Shrimp may just be a serial hermit killer >.<

My two larger Zebra Dartfish are still alienating the smaller one and have even started moving on to the other two fish in the tank.

If you talking about bar gobies Ptereleotris zebra it is usually best to introduce them at the same time and if you can't then make sure here are enough hiding spaces and that the new arrival gets to eat as well. These fish need to eat quite frequently so feeding multiple times a day is optimal.
