Do you plan on more live rock?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Looks nice - love my firefish - is your tank covered? If not both the firefish and wrasse are known jumpers, so you may wanna put a screen.

Plus 1 on the snails. Aim for 10-12 and get 45-50 lbs of LR

Thanks everyone. Yeah, I plan on getting more snails and live rock for sure. I will probably pull some more nassarius snails from my 180 salt tank. And I really wanna keep it clean, so I gotta search for the right rock lol And no worries, it's definitely covered. I haven't had any problems with them jumping yet, but keep your fingers cross. I'm thinking about adding a cherub angel, some shrimp (haven't decided what kind yet) and some coral. Probably some zoas and some softies.

no way would i put 10 nassarius snails in a 29 gallon tank. you'll have to add food just for them. you only have 20 pounds of sand. they will starve to death.
