Looks ok to me. I would get nassarius snails. They turn over the sandbed nicely.

Yes. I am putting 6 in my 30 gallon, but i might do just 5. I prefer to see a less colorful/active community if i have the peace of mind knowing it is healthy and happy.

1 orange clown
1 royal gramma
1 purple firefish
1 yellow watchman goby
1 sixline wrasse or bangaii cardinal.
Just get 4 maybe 5 fish. 6 = 30 gallon, not a 20 gallon long

Its also not necessarily the number of fish, but the types of fish you've chosen. If you want 6 fish, pick smaller ones.

I'm in the process of re-stocking my 72 and have decided to go with almost entirely smaller fish, so that I can have a more active tank.

Very true. Just because we say 4 fish is max, that doesnt mean you can have a box puffer, snowflake eel, niger trigger, and yellow tang. But im sure you alredy know this zach, just clarifying

Even if zach does go all nano fish, he could still only get a healthy amount of 4, 5 nano fish being the max for a 20L
(and im not sure if a clown is classified as "nano" but i dont think so"
