Whats next for my tank?

Ive had my tank set up for about 5 months now and i have 1 clownfish, mushrooms, and a zoas frag. Im not sure what to get next; livestock or equipment. its a 30 gallon tank, 78watts of t5 lighting, one 1200gph powerhead, hob filter and skimmer, 17lbs live rocks. any ideas/ constructive critisism is greatly appreatiated!

If you are going to add more fish, I would add more rock. You'll have to cure it in a separate container though, or it may cause an ammonia spike.

I really the aquascape I have now. I have another tank. Could I attach to two tanks and make one like a 10g refugium tank. Would it still serve the same purpose

Yes. the rock is your natural filter. No matter where it is in the system, it will help process organics. If you are planning on more fish, they may need hiding spots and rock to graze on also. keeping a remote sump full of rock won't help with this however. Just something to think about.

I think a yellow tang would be cool. Or a Maroon clown.

the tank is way to small for a yellow tang. and i already have a occelaris clown. i dont know if a maroon clown and the occelaris woul get along. thanks for the ideas. once i upgrade i will, without a doubt get a yellow tang.

Maybe in your fantasy troll world, but not in reality. Neither would do well in a 30 gallon.

Blue chromis are great , lively , and good in groups I have 3 in my tank.
I also have a Flame angle who is fantastic , I have a few mushrooms , a Zoa frag , hammer coral( fantastic ) and sun coral and he hasn't nipped at any what so ever .
But you will need more LR for ur DT and believe me no matter how much u like it now more rock will make it look better , I have a 55g tank with 60lb of rock and considering more .
You may also want to start considering CUC like a few hermits and snails.
K I'm done now 0_o.
