My g/f just upgraded from a 10 gal to a 29 gal and gave me the 10. I really want to make a nano reef eventually, by the end of the yr. But I want something that everyone's gonna look at and say "whoa".
Everyone's got clown gobies or blennies or firefish etc and inverts, like sexy shrimp or fire shrimp. And while I like these and will probably add some. I want something weird and unusual. I want something most people have never seen before.
So I figured what place other than AA has more weird and unusual people that could help me out, I mean that in a good way lol.

So any ideas??

True so if you got a harlequin I would suggest cutting the legs off chocolate starfish then let them grow back. Always worked for me

Looks like the longnose decorators can get about 6" including legs which could be pushing it in size. Although they are pretty freakin' cool. Harlequin shrimp are pretty unique too, would be a pain in the behind to feed though.

Both great suggestions, I found these guys in liveaquaria. Thought they were pretty neat looking. Especially the white ones.

Oh or maybe an entire tank of Christmas tree worms! That would look awesome. I think I would be too tempted to keep sticking my hand in and waving it back and forth to watch them zip back into their tubes.
