They would do just fine, but they would look way cooler in a reef


For them I'd advise only about a pound of rock per gallong of water so you can always see them, they're fairly small fish

Seahorses need a species only tank IMO. The smallest they go is a pair of kudas, but they need 15 gallons per pair.

harlequin shrimp do best as a mated a pair. You will also need to keep proper iodine levels, because like any shrimp, FW or SW, they need the iodine to encourage proper molting.

Make sure the neons are a mated pair, although they are peaceful fish, they tend to be territorial towards their own species. I think the firefish would be fine. You said you wanted some cool fish, why not get a nice purple firefish? Firefish are awesome any color, I just like the purple. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...173&pcatid=173

I think they would go well, just make sure you have a full lid or some fine mesh, the firefish is sure to jump.

(JMO but if you're gonna go crazy and get a different firefish get this guy: Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Firefish, Helfrichi, pricey, but awesome)

Yupp for sure Ian getting one firefish there is a ton of names for them out there I believe it's a purple firefish others say some type of goby but I know what Iam looking for lol plus two mated neon goby so for these three fish I should get 10 pounds of live rock? And how many pounds of sand iam getting actual Hawaiian black sand on ebay

10lbs would be fine IMO, but I do prefer a shallower sandbed.

You could do more rock, but IMO they would look better with a minimalist scape.
