thanks for the replies... i've been doing quite a bit of research and using nano-reef.com for a lot of information as well.
as for my cleaning crew here is what i'm thinking
-1 scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp
-2 crabs (not sure what kind... help!!!)
-8 or so turbo/astrea snails
as for my fish stocking, a few possibilties
-1 firefish gobie
-mated clowns (can someone inform me about mated SW
i'm having a hard time with the fish stocking list... gahhh
and for some corals i'm thinking the nano soft coral pack available on live-aquaria.com including mushroom, polyp and soft corals.
as far as the tanks cycle, i was told by the employee at the LFS
that i wouldn't see a cycle and didn't need to supplement in any ammonia because of the live-rock and live-sand. was he wrong? if i do need to do something, please let me know and i'll drop a shrimp in there or do the ammonia drip cycle.
thanks a ton guys!!!
