Ok so I successfully added my CUC except for a shrimp (which I will get sometime after I buy fish). They have really gotten that nasty brown algae under control and I believe some coralline as started spreading.

This is what I stocked so far:
2x Red Cortez Hermit Crabs
2x Blue Legged Hermit Crabs
2x Nassassius Snails
1x Astrea Snail

Anyways this is how my water tested today:

pH: 8.0
Ammonia: 0 ppm
NO2: 0ppm
NO3: 5.0 ppm
Salinity: Between 1.021-1.022

I believe that it all checks out as normal. I'll add fish after the first of the year. I want two clowns (and yes I know it is pushing it) If anyone has other suggestions as a look to stock it, I would appreciate it.

I wouldn't put a pair in a 10g. You might get away with 1 but it's still pushing it IMO.

You can always go with a pair of clown gobys, one green and one yellow. Maybe a pistol shrimp and goby pair.

Nice tubbs blues, I just got some of those myself! Give the mushroom some time, sometimes they can be weird. If it's still closed maybe move it

Where would you put it in my tank? On top of the rock on the left side? I was worried that was too high in the tank
