Looking for some advice

Hey guys,

Starting up my first tank, a 12-gallon Nanocube. Have 3 astrea (spelling?) snails doing very well for almost 2 weeks now, and just got a clownfish on Tuesday. Fish is doing good, he/she was of course a little jittery for the first few hours, lots of hiding, but he ate right away that first day. Much more calm the next day, just enjoying swimming around and eating each morning. I'm being very careful to not overfeed like I always hear about - first question is should I just feed once daily? Second question is that I'd like to get a feeder/cleaner shrimp for the tank. When can I get one, is it too soon right now?


12 Gallon Nanocube
1 Astrea Snail
1 Blue Legged Crabs
1 Scarlet Reef Crabs
Zoanthus & Mushroom Corals

-Currently upgrading to a 75g saltwater!

If it were me I would wait to add anything but Im also very over protective on things like this. I would think about getting a few crabs for cleaning up on the bottom of any left over food and such. Also I would only feed every other day...fish dont need a lot of food...just my opinion!!
