So I just thought I would see if anyone had any opinions on the idea of introducing a coral banded shrimp as my first specimen to my 55 Gallon SW
tank. This is my first tank. I've been curing for about a month and have 0 nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia... a steady temp (79F), a steady salinity (1.023), and steady PH (8.2) - Am I forgetting anything?
As far as I've been able to read coral banded shrimp are pretty good tank mates and won't be too much for a first specimen.
This will be a FOWLR
(I have 55 Pounds of rock, about 50/50 LR
and Base). This may be a dumb question but I just thought I would get an opinion before I did it. Not sure why I want to do it, but I'm just really cautious to buy the first fish just in case I missed something... My first fish will be a pair of clowns in case it makes a difference. Just thought I would give the system some bio load to see how it responds I guess. Thanks for any help!
