How are these numbers?

ph 8
ammo 0
nitrite 0
nitrate 20

I do 20% water changes every 2 1/2 weeks
of my 14 gal biocube

Can I add more corals now? I just have one small mushroom at this moment

You will probably want to get those nitrAtes down more before adding more. I know I already commented on the horseshoe crab and how they can grow up to 2-3 feet long. That spiny lobster can grow over 1.5 feet. Trust me, they tend to grow pretty fast.

I guess the lobster and crab will have to go into my acrylic 75 gallon eventually. The spiny lobster doesn't have any large pinchers (claws) like a typical lobster has. Is that normal? As far as nitrates go (always hated them) can I leave in the macro algae growing in the nano now to help deal with metabolism of the nitrates? Besides growing like a wild jungle and possibly depleting available 02 (guessing)(or is it co2?) what is wrong with algae?

I would suggest doing weekly PWCs on such a small tank. Every 2 1/2 weeks seems a bit long to me.
