20gal long livestock...

Hey...I was just wondering if this sounds like a good list for a 20gal long...

1 false perc
1 small royal gramma
maybe a goby...could I consider a firefish??..any opinions on which goby?

snails, hermits and some corals...right now the tank only has LR, LS, snails, hermits and some shrooms and some yellow polyps. I plan on adding maybe a few more corals later on(any opinions on cool corals that could be ok under that light?).............

I have the tank setup with a big HOB filter(up to 80gal) its a Tetratec, another small HOB filter, coralife T5 strips..72W total. Maybe adding a skimmer later on..but need a small one. Oh and a Maxijet 900 powerhead.

i don't know much about other things since i just started a few months ago but i try to help people out as much as i can.

For ur 20G, you should use 2 Maxijet 600 (320 GPH total) so the flow would be more chaotic, which is better for ur fishes and inverts.

Don't get firefish if u don't have something to cover the top b/c they tend to jump out of the tank

If you wanted a goby I'd probably go with a clown goby. they stay pretty small and are fun to watch hop around from rock to rock. i would either go with a goby or a firefish not both. i don't know how much LR you have and what kind of bioload that your tank can handle. i'd add one and wait a month or two to see if your tank is doing okay and if it is then add another one. P.S. if you are going to get a skimmer that is small and does a good job, i'd recommend the Remora. I just got one for my 29 gal and it does an awesome job. they are a little expensive but its worth it. they arent really small but they arent huge like some of the ones i've seen.
