So, as far as feeding goes, hopefully this will help some people, including me :

Can you "grow" your own phyto? If so, how?

Is there another name for "silversides" that perhaps a grocery store would call them? I found raw shrimp, easily, but nothing named silversides. Lots of cod and salmon though.

William:: Good recipe for "blender mush" ... I think it's reefrunner69's, but I forgot where I got this URL from, so don't quote me on that:

The crab is basically a scavenger and will eat whatever it can find off the bottom. As for the Anenome it will basically grab anything that floats by. Mine eat mysis, lifeline, flake whatever I am feeding my fish. Occassionally I will directly feed a small piece of shrimp or squid(frozen) with a feeding stick. Since you do not have any fish yet be careful not to overfeed. If you do direct feed to the anenome make sure it takes it and does not spit it out.

Not real familiar with the foods you listed. The plankton algae you listed is that in liquid form? If so I will assume it is the equivalent to the phyto plankton I was referring to earlier for the feather duster and live rock. Honestly, I do not think I would put much in your set up for food right now until you get some more livestock.

Any thoughts yet on what you are going to stock for fish? Long term you should look at a clean up crew such as snails blue leg and red leg hermits as many as 1 per gallon. Shrimp such as cleaner and peppermint are good as well. Be careful with the arrow crab as I have heard they can be aggressive toward small fish.

Have fun,

Long Term, I was thinking two tankraised Black Percula [ Amphiprion Percula var. ] and a tankraised Watchman Goby [Cryptocentrus lutheri].

I was also thinking on a some pistol shrimp, A PomPom crab or two, More Hermits of course, some Turbo Snails, and I have a pipedream of having an Eel, altho most likely that won't happen with this tank.

When I upgrade the lighting I'd also like to get into Corals and other Anenomes, I have a Florida Pink Tip in the tank right now that came with it, And I heard many stories where FPT would wander across the tank just to sting another one so I'd obviously have to be very careful of what Ipicked.

I also want to get more live rock, atleast some rubble to seed the tank with Coralines and some other benificial goodies [ pods, worms, any other little buggers that complete this Eco system in a box. ]

I've been..

Well, the phrase best to describe it wouldn't be suitable for use on this forum.

But, Heh.

I've been wanting this, and thinking about this for a long time.
