Lol I don't think so. Maybe 1


Ok so I guess it's come to:

2 blue leg hermits
2 zebra hermits
1 scarlet hermit
2 sexy shrimp
1 peppermint shrimp
1 brittle star
1 emerald crab
1 pompom crab
1 astrea snail
1 neon goby or yellow clown goby

And any other neat creatures I may come across

This isn't a reef (if I remember correctly) so any light will do, much like a non planted tank it doesn't matter.

You want a powerhead to keep flow in the tank, stagnant water means algae

Shouldn't I try to grow algae though for all the inverts in my tank to eat?


And for what Istrom said, could I just get a pistol shrimp (without the goby as this is more an invert tank)? Would it dig a burrow by itself and would it kill any of my other inverts?

Not the type of algae you want really.

The pistol shrimp can live on its own, as for hurting other inverts, it tends to be docile, and is pretty blind. If it feels threatened or if something attacks it, then it will get aggressive.

As for a Powerhead, I would do one of the small hydor koralias, or an ecodrift 4.0
