I recently just upgraded from a 5g nano to 24g (I think) needless to say I have much more room! And I'm wondering what my best options would be.
As far as fish go all I have is a Clark Clown and a green bta.
I have about 10 various snails as a crab for my clean up crew. Im planning on getting a cleaner shrimp soon also.

I've heard the green chromis are a good choice, to me there just plain and boring! Anything else that would be a good match and help benefit the tank overall? Or am I stuck with the chromies.
Thanks!

Also.. When I moved tanks a lot of my coral didn't make it. My zoas are losing color, my Ricordia is almost fully bleached, and all my Kenya's withered away
Any suggestions on what I should stock up on next. I'm really wanting something that can stay on the rocks and grow and spread out over them.

What light is that? It probably isn't strong or has the optics to focus over the larger area from the upgrade... or it is a stock tank light that isn't strong enough for corals/anemone.

It's a 70w halide.

Thats why they are bleaching, too much light too soon.

The clark's clownfish is very territorial so I would be cautious when adding new fish. You could try to add a single fire fish.

I've started to notice that! It loves me, comes to the front when the lights come on to get fed, but when I try and feed the bta he gets all mad and gets in the way.

Are fire fish pretty passive?
