it looks good, esp the little cave. i dont think this tank can pull off a firefish let alone 2. look into a yellow watchman goby and a pistol shrimp. the nass snails are meat eaters, you'll want another type that has an algae diet. as for the worm the photo is way to blurry.

The goby.shrimp was gonna be my next choice of fish.Though I have gotten mixed info on them. I have read they need at least 10 m gallons, at least 15 and at least 30 gallons. So could I keep the pair? Also would keeping the two together effect me being able to own sexy shrimp or other type of shrimp? How would I feed the pair?

I am basing my CUC snail crew on this LionfishLair.com - Library So instead of the Nassarius should I get Nerite or Astraea? Any others I should look into? Also I do not want turbos.

Also I have the MJ 400 in the sump section but should I run my MJ 600 as well in the tank? If so where should I place it?

Thank you!

I know very little about marine, but I vote nerites so you can sell the surplus to us freshwater folks... :)

wait nerites are freshwater and salt?

They survive in both but only reproduce in saltwater.

if you subtract whats lost from the refuge area in the back, and what the rock displaces things would be very cramped with 2 fish IMO.
i think both the pistol and the fish could pose threat to a sexy.

What about a scarlet cleaner shrimp? could I keep that with the goby and pistol? I want some life walking around the rock and corals if I can. Any other suggestions?

Left for a day came back was re-filling the water. Looked into the tank and there was a little brown worm wiggling about. Any Idea what it is?
