100$ BlueZoo Spending

Alright guys, bluezoo is having a labor day thing where if you purchase over 75$ worth of product, its free overnight shipping.. so im taking advantage of it. And i figure i might as well spend 100$ instead of 75$. So i want you guys to give me some suggestions, and maybe chime in on some of my own suggestions.

Heres what i have in the cart so far..
2 Emerald Mithrax Crabs
1 Tiger Pistol Shrimp
5 Astrea Snails
5 Nassarius Snails

That adds up to about $50.15.. so i still have around 50 or 60 more bucks to spend. I want to get some coral, but if theres any other inverts you guys think my tank would need, or i should get, then please list 'em.

I was also wondering if there are any sea stars or sea urchins, that would fair well in a fairly new tank like mine. If not its cool, im just askin.

Thanks guys.

IMO you`ll need a mature tank for either of those esp. the sea stars. IME

Alright cool. Just wanted to know what some people had to say. I'm not in a rush to get any of them. Was just seeing if there was anything hardy out there that could do well in a fairly new tank. Thanks melosu.


Anyways, i've come up with a final list. Maybe theres room for editing, but if you guys think its good, just give me a thumbs up.

2 Emerald Mithrax Crabs
5 Nassu Snails
5 Astrea Snails
1 Tiger Pistol Shrimp
1 Pom Pom Xenia Branch
1 Green Candycane Coral

So.. what do you guys think?

Add a few more nassarius and astrea, maybe 3-5 more. Try some of the LPS, like anchor, frogspawn, or candycane. Maybe another cleaner or 2.

Alright, i'll add a few more of those snails, but i don't think i could afford another cleaner shrimp haha. Maybe a peppermint shrimp or two since they're cheap. Also, i'm getting a candycane coral haha, but i would really love to get a frogspawn or anchor or torch.. they're just pretty expensive.. Maybe i'll see if one of my parents will buy it for me lol. Thanks for the input thom.

No problem lol. Hmmm.....do they have white-banded cleaners? Those tend to be only $10-$15. Just a thought, how about some acros?

Yup! Once they start to grow, you can split them up and make some $ back.
