20g should be the smallest, but because they don't do much in the line of swimming out of a certain area, most put em in a 10g.

Some say 10g, but I agree with 20g or more. They were one of my ideas for the 10g, but I thought they grew to big. I belive they get 6 inches (?). And you cant fit an anemone in a ten gallon either, which I think would complete the picture. :P

WOW, thats alot of stuff for a 10g tank. Unless you plan on just putting one of each in there. Aiptasia eating shrimp are Peppermint Shrimp.
DT is main tank, and Gobies are not inverts. If the fish get sick, yes you would either have to move em to QT, becaues most medications don't sit well with corals or inverts.
Your only going to be able to put one Coral Banded Shrimp in there, uless its a mated pair, or else they will kill each other. Also, if yoiu plan on putting a Coral Banded Shrimp in a 10g tank, I would not put any other Shrimp in there, or they will get killed also. Larger systems can handle the both of them because of space, but the lil shrimp doesn't have many spaces to hide in a small system. Brittel Star = 10", to big for a 10g tank. And i think that all your choices are Reef safe. But once you have all those critters in there, you aren't going to have any room for Corals.
