Amazing how fast this hobby goes from "easy" to "difficult" with one sentence

I co-sign with others as this hobby is not cheap nor easy. I have spent thousands of dollars on my 29g. I don't have any anemones or coral, but I do have LR with lots of macro-algae. In a smaller tank it requires more maintenance and much more attention to detail.

29g FOWLR- 2 Percula Clowns
2 Emerald Mithrax Crab, 5 Nassarius Snails, 3 Astrea Snails, 1 mexican turbo snails, 1 Chocolate Chip Star, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, and 27lbs of LR 2lbs tonga branch and 25lbs fiji rock

Maiden's Hair, Calerpa, and Red Kelp macro algae.
