I'm about to acquire a 10gal nano tank. Previous owner has it set up as a mini-reef. Comes with Current USA skimmer, power filter, power-head, 50 watt submersible heater and 1- 20” 96 watt pc
. (Coralife) 50/50 bulb. Also has 11lbs of live rock. I'm quite familiar with freshwater planted and nonplanted setups, but this is my first dive into salt.
1. I would like to house easy-to-grow coral at first, and maybe move onto something more difficult later. Any suggestions?
2. Inverts - I assume hermit crabs and snails will be ok? Is this adequate room for a cleaner or coral banded shrimp?
3. After setup for a couple weeks, I would like to add a fish - obviously something that stays small. Is this enough room for a percula clown? Any other suggestions?
I will probably be using biospira to assist in the setup. I work at a LFS
, so a lot of the stuff will be readily available to me.
thanks in advance
