Sheps rebuilding the nano

Looks good, I like the height distribution, you have a lot of middle of the tank height. For fish, I'm picking up (hopefully tomorrow) some neon blue gobies. You could do a small school of them, their bio load is really small. They are pretty cool too, one of my LFSs has them in his display tank and he showed me if you put your hand in they will "clean it" similar to a cleaner shrimp. How far along are you on cycling? Other frags... Maybe trumpet/candy cane, chalice, laptestrea, suncoral, ricordea and of course acans!!

Sheps rebuilding the nano

Thanks sand dollar I'll research that, but this tank is about 6 months old. It's fully cycled I'm going to start adding corals this weekend I'll keep you all updated. How many neon blue gobies do you think I could manage? I want to keep the water quality as good as possible. But here's an updated list of corals I'm thinking about

Birds nest
Torch
Hammer
Pulsing Xenia
Green star polyps
Duncan
Monti cap
Wall frogspawn
Leonardo zoas
Lucifer zoas
Candy cane
Australian elegance
Cyphastrea

My guy (& he isn't like a regular LFS trying to sell you anything so I feel I can trust him) said about 4 of them would have about the same bioload of one ocellaris clown. The only issue is if you want to just do three or four them it needs to be just one male and others female but groups larger than that tend to tolerate each other. I'm just going to do two since I have/want some other fish. You can't tel the sex but he said typically once they are in the tank a few hours they will start to pair off so you can tell which ones should get along. Can't wait to see what you pick up! I love elegance but think I'm out of room or would need a very very small one.
