^+1. If you buy a huge cuc in a package, many will starve, and the snails you have to continuously turn back over. That is a pain with too many of them. I have a 55 gallon. I have 15-20 crabs and 15-20 various snails. From turbo to margaritas. I did have 15 turbos before the hurricane and 7 days without electricity, and the were amazing, never starved and glass was always spotless. Turbos also eat hair algae. But they mow over live rock if it isn't heavy enough or secured/glued. I prefer turbos over any other snail. I plan to get 2 cleaner shrimp also.

I have a marineland reef led on a 10 gal nano.. I think it depends on the depth of the tank too... A 10 gal is only about 12" at most(bare)...now on a 20 tall.. No it wouldnt be brite enuf because of the depth... You would need stronger.. Im an idiot..what size tank again? ?

Okay I don't think I'm going to get an overly large CUC, probably just four or five snails with a Cleaner shrimp. And I think I'm going with the marineland fixture. The reef capable with timer. It's a 36 gallon bowfront which is rather deep. That said I'm not getting into corals until I get a skimmer so if th light isn't sufficient enough ill add some t5s or another l.e.d money permitting

Okay guys now almost a month after set up, I have gone through the cycle fine. About two weeks ago I introduced livestock. I now have two Clowns, a yellow clown goby, and a yellow headed jawfish. Don't plan on introducing any more for awhile. Parameters are great zero across the board. I think I'm going to only add one or two more fish, but would like something that will swim more in the middle of the water column like my clowns. Interested on any information about the firefish, also at the store I saw a very small Bi-color angelfish for a very reasonable price. I know the angelfish is eventually going to outgrow the tank but it looks absolutely amazing and it's small enough that he would be comfortable for quite some time I think. Please feel free guys to sell me on why or why not the angel is a bad idea.
