I have a Hydor with 425gph in my 10g. It's superb.

Unless you have a chiller for the tank, it's a bad idea.

That's more realistic. I would still set the heater to about 77, so the other inverts wouldn't get too cold, but the cowrie wouldn't overheat.

I think one would do fine! I have one in my 90. He's never even needed special care

The reason I asked about the porcelain is that pompom crabs here are pricey and I thought maybe a porcelain crab could substitute for it.

Thanks


Do I need a protein skimmer for this tank?

No. From what I've been told they really are not needed on nano tanks like this.
