Well, Im not exactly sure yet. I would like a couple or 3 vibrant coloured fish. Would also like to have some other criters roaming the bottom in the sand and on my rocks and stuff... I do NOT want to try corals or anything like that. I will wait untill I get a bigger tank to do that stuff..

Here are some Nano Fish Suggestions . You can also check out their inverts for some ideas on a clean up crew.

Those are good selections on the fish and will add lots of color.
The clean up crew should be small, when you first start out as there will not be too much for them to eat.
Maybe start with 15-20 snails (i like cerith and nassarius snails), a cleaner shrimp or a fire shrimp.

I'd stay away from the Attack pak - particularly the sand sifting star. They don't last long IME as the sand bed is depleted of food they eat. The cucumber is also a risk - especially in a new tank. If it dies in your tank, or is bothered and expels its guts which they are known to do, I belive it can kill everything in the tank. The star might be OK though.

I'd go with the clown, the pair of neon gobies, and maybe the firefish with decent filtration and about 20lbs or so of live rock and a skimmer. My 2 cents!

Oh yeah, I do have a CPR Bak Pak skimmer if you're interested. Used. Needs a Maxi Jet 1200 to go with it.

So what I am gathering is the live rock is a must. I really wasnt wanting a tank full of rocks but if thats whats necessary then thats what I will do.

After reading up a little bit on star fish they seam very tough to keep. Not recomended for a new tank. I think it would be neat to have a crab in there but probably not doable in a nano tank ehh?

You can get hermit crabs. For the most part, crabs can get nasty as they get larger.

Nasty meaning Aggresive?

Yes. They tend to be opportunistic eaters. If they are hungry and can take down a fish/coral/inverts, they might.

I have another question.. Sorry

I took out the the shrimp so I am curious what will keep my cycle going? If I wait to add fish for a while will my cycle die with no life in the tank to provide the amonia?

I am going to add some more live rock tonight or tomorrow too...
