hows this sound for starters

3x turbo snails
3-5x Nassarius Snails
3-5x Cerith Snails
2x Pepermint shrimp
1x Emerald Crab
3-5x Dwarf Hermits

I have a large supply of Diatoms right now so they should have plenty of food.

I may also snag a few frags im not sure yet though ill probably get a Zoanthus frag for sure but that may be all, depends on how much the inverts cost.

I would pass on the turbos, they eat alot of algae but are bulldozers in a tank, they knock alot of stuff down.

otherwise it looks ok to me anyways.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

ok will do, some of my LR are small peices that I have around to make little caves and what not and they would probably knock them over all the time along with my frags

Also am considering a larger cleanup crew however idk I was thinking about doubling the size of it having 12x Dwarf hermits, 12x Nassarius Snails, and 12x Cerith Snails, I would really like to get a larger hermit crab as well idk what kind get larger like 2" or so that I could have.

Today I picked up a rock with about 5 green mushrooms on it that have lines that go through them and I decided to go with a stary blenny over a midas blenny so I got one today and I got a McCosker's Flasher Wrasse. The blenny it already at home hes not being shy or anything and is doing very well. The wrasse is comming out now and flashing, he wasnt getting along with the clowns right away but they did a little fight and now they are all good.

I do have a question though I put a thing of egg create on the tank but with my light on it I have to take the light off in order to get into the tank, I have it because Im afraid the wrasse will jump, will he? Can i cut the middle of the crate out so I can get in the tank and that way there will just be a edd around the tank or would that not help anything? I would think the only way he would jump out is on the edges and if the middle was open he wouldnt be able to out?

I can tell you from sad personal experience that flasher wrasses will likely jump out if the tank isn't completely covered. I'm also afraid the "hole" idea you're considering will only end up keeping him from getting back in when he jumps. Total pain in the rear, but it's what we have to do to keep them I guess.
