Advice for 10 gallon

I am setting up a 10 gallon FOWLR and i need some advice for stocking it. I would like a clown fish, 1 cleaner shrimp, and some snails. How many snails should i have and could i have another smaller fish or will it be to crowed. If i could have another fish i would like something with some color.

A couple nassarius snails and two or three others, like I have astrea and trochus snails. Some people suggest ceriths but I've never had them before.

You could add a small goby, court jesters are colorful, but other then that it will harder to handle with the bioload. Make sure you keep up with weekly pwc.

I have two ~1'' tomato clowns (I'm getting another tank in a couple months), one yellow watchman goby, one cleaner shrimp, one emerald crab, 3 blue leg hermits, 3 nassarius snails, two astreas and one trochus, o and a --- long candy cane pistol shrimp. Then corals. I do a ~30% pwc once a week and I have ~25-30lbs of lr.

If you got a mated pair then you should be OK. Your shrimp and snails should be OK.

IMHO a skimmer is a waste of money for a 20 gallon or less tank. Just change the water once a week.

I agree with Lance. Do a partial water change once a week (I do 10-20%, roughly). If you have a fairly good filtration system with LR and such, it suffices just fine.

A skimmer would be pointless. I would do partial water changes once a week to keep up or even using a good amount of live rock with live sand will help out with filtration.
