Bio cube stocking

Hello Everyone
Im going to be starting up a saltwater tank soon with 15 Lbs of live rock , a fuge Ans chemi pure .

2 true percula
1 yellow watchmen goby
1 snapping shrimp
1 skarlet cleaner shrimp
2 porcelain crabs

Cuc?????

I know this is pushing boundaries, but I think it should be able to work as long as I do water changes

Do you see any compatibility issues fighting wise and what would you recommend Cuc wise ( snails only )

Thanks

Personally, I think youre pushing it with the 2 clowns in a 14g tank. Some people do it though.

I agree it is pushing it, I think I'll try it and if they don't seem happy I'll return one. Do you see any fighting problems

Nope, other than the two clowns which might fight for a bit the list looks good.

In a 14g you don't really need much. I'd probably get a porcelain crab, maybe an emerald crab, some shrimp, maybe 6 snails and/or 6 hermits.

I would stay away from turbos. They tend to knock coral over and things all over the place. lol Out of all my tanks I have/had i have had only 1 turbo.
