Livestock questions since I'm almost there

I know my first few fish are going to be 3 juvenile green chromis but I had a few questions.

Are there any mid sized hermits that are reef safe? Even if I can only get one

And for gobies I was thinking of doing a shrimp goby do you need to put them and the shrimp in at the same time?

Yeah. There's Alot of small-medium sized hermits that are reef safe. I think my favorite are electric blue legged hermits.

The goby pistol pair, it helps to ad them at the same time. And aclimate them together Ect. But there's a decent chance they'll pair up even if you add them months apart.

I was at my lfs yesterday and he told me red leg hermits are better than blue because when he buys 3-4 k at a time more reds last than blues. Would this be true?

Kinda. Scarlets seem to be less aggressive towards each other. I've noticed my blues tend to gang up on eachother lol

If you put hermits in there make sure you put plenty of shells (empty of course) for them to move into as the grow. Otherwise they will kill whatever has the shell they want whether it be a snail, another hermit ot whatever.
