I have started up a predator tank with a Bird Wrasse, Snowflake eel and Lion fish and would like to know if a sleeper goby would be compatable or what else could i put in, to clean/sift sand? I know snails and wrasse dont mix!
I had an aggresive tank. Nothing will stand what you have in the tank. You can keep buying a CUC in abundance, then when they get low, buy more.
Use a Powerhead once a week and blow off the substrate, let the skimmer get the junk.
I know its not what you want to hear. But when you get fish that will eat your CUC, there isn't much you can do but keep buyin more. You could get Sea Urchins, but they won't do much in the way of cleaning your Sand.
For those reading this that don't know what a CUC is- Clean Up Crew Snails, Hermits, Urchins, Starfish, Slugs. The guys who help clean your tank.
