in ages, so others here can recommend various brands.
Coral capable lights are available everywhere for nano tanks. 10 watts would be more than enough.

What would be a good size tank for the species I want, Gonodactylellus Viridis... I don't want to over kill on something that's about 2" long. I want the shrimp to be comfortable, but I don't want to get a massive tank like a 30gallon. Also am I supposed to mod the hob
filter it seems like it would start to collect salt inside of the filter.
