Inverts For My Tank?

This is for all you experts regarding inverts etc ...

To begin with my tank is only going to have 15 Watts for the whole tank. This is for my 10 gal tank. I justw anted to know what sort of coll inverts and soft corals if any I could have its just that i have to place orders at my lfs as it is small so I wanted to rough idea of how much money to have put to one side lol.

Any LR? Get some LR if you dont have any and a cleaner or fire shrimp will be eye catchers in a tank. Some scarlet legged hermits and a mix of snails. I would not over do it with the snails.
No corals will do well with only 15 watts of light and its probably NO lighting?

I agree. Corals are out of the question with that lighting. Get some LR first and go from there. Mobile inverts will include skunk cleanter and blood shrimp (which like LR to hide in) and some reef hermits as suggested.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
