thanks!

Would I be okay with getting filter feed of some sort? Like a tube worm or are they considered reef and would they need better lighting?

How many snails should I get? 10?

Tubeworms are not photo dependent and don't need light to survive. This post is really long so please refresh my memory as to what you have in your tank at the moment. Some fish will pick at tubeworms.

Just 2 smaller ones for now I'd say. Doing hermits? If so, do a couple of those while you're at it IMO.

+1, also the chromis are fine with a featherduster. Find a nice Hawaiian featherduster.
here is a photo of my duster with a Clarkii eying it up as a possible hosting site. Clarkii like most clowns are weird...

Hermits seem to be a matter of choice for lots of people. Some don't like that they may attack snails for their shells. I think that is a natural part of the sea and hobby. I just replace a few snails once or twice a year. that and keep a few empty shells (slighty larger than the current homes).

I think the hermits get to a lot of uneaten food in the rocks and other places and are good janitors. There are even tiny hermits that can do that for you. They can't kill snails.

Sweet, so my stocking list for today will be 2 hermits and 3 snails and a duster. Too much for the bio load or no?
