That sounds good and makes sense. That's pretty much what we did with our 38 gal
., placing the largest rocks with flat bottoms in first - but they are placed on top of the sand rather than on the tank bottom.
Here is our beginning list of fish/inverts. Please let us know of any of your favorites along with any suggestions on what to include or avoid.
Occelaris pair (from 10 gal
Yellow Watchman Goby
Royal Gramma (love their colors)
Any other suggestions?: bangaii cardinals, chromis, dartfish, dragonet, different basslet/gramma - Any fish must get along with others and be coral and invert. safe
red banded pistol shrimp
2 cleaner shrimp
1 or 2 peppermint shrimp?
1 scarlet reef hermit crab
1 porcelain anemone crab (is this considered reef safe?)
3 banded trochus snails (from the 10 gal
1 Florida cerith snail (from the 10 gal
3 Nassarius snails (from the 10 gal
1 Nerite snail (from the 10 gal
6 dwarf cerith snails (from the 10 gal
6 dwarf planaxis snails (from the 10 gal
lg. featherduster (We'll wait on this until the tank has been running for a few months)
Do you have any other suggestions on what we should add or avoid for our clean up crew or other inverts?
zig zag periwinkles, flame scallop, or nudibranch?
Also wondering about a sea cucumber down the road - Are there any that are safer than others?
clam? - If we get the neccessary lighting. crocea, maxima, derasa, squamosa - any suggestions?
