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... :)

They survive in both but only reproduce in saltwater.

shrimps

i own a pair of yellow watchmen in a 9 gallon nano and a nice candy cane pistol shrimps...they do great...a sexy shrimp with them would be a nono ...very few fishes resisit a sexy shrimp for a meal...but as usual opinions seem to be differnt...i thought the fire fish would do fine in your modefied ten... a lttle cramped but i have seen it work in a 10....anyhow watchmen are interesting and wont break the bank.....

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?
