some brittle stars would be a good idea, the nass snails, cerith snails, astrea snails.

I see that you have a mandarinfish, you might want to buy copepods as well.

I dont know if you caught drillsar and what he said about the lawnmower blenny. You might want to catch that thought. Also is this going to be a reef tank. If it is then you`ll have to get rid of Choc. chip star. Not reef friendly.

I feed My Lawnmower ever 4 days Dried algae. I have been noticeing Him eating the Algae that is going on the filters. I have the Choc. Chip in there now I will be getting rid of it soon. He is still small and hang out at the top of the tank. I did notice today A smell. What could that be my skimmer? The Mandrine has been eating the Brine shrimp. I was shocked to see her do that she also goes all over my rocks. How many Brittle Star should I have just one? What about the Orange Star fish are they any good?
