100 lbs of rock so far and more coming. I'd recommend about 30 hermit crabs for the existing 100 lbs of rock. Sally Lightfoots are kool too I guess, but I've never had'm. Go the scarlet reef (red) hermits. They are my favorite, but I keep a variety in my tank. A few electric blue, a bunch of teeny 50 cents hermits for the smaller rock crevices, etc. I update'm about twice a year maybe because some will disappear (natural causes, eaten by others, etc).
The turbos will poop, but after a while, you may not even notice it any more.
The powder blue tang is not an easy tang to care for, so I wouldn't recommend him until months down the road after your tank is REALLY stable. Some refer to them as one of the ick magnets. VERY pretty though, I agree. I did the purple instead.
As far as your fish choices, check out blennies, clowns, and other gobies. Reef safe wrasses also.
and my wife wants clown fish.
See? There ya go. It's decided
- return the damsels and get a pair of (farm bred if possible) percula or occellaris clowns. Farm bred seem to be a lot more friendly and hardy IMO
. Some of the other types (skunks, yellow or white striped maroon) may get very big and territorial and cause problems down the road I believe.
