May I recommend a Skunk Cleaner shrimp or two. They don't hide unlike my Banded Coral Shrimp that I may see I once a week.

could add some plant life if you plan on staying FOWLR
you can get some nice looking macro's red, green, pink , blue , orange ect

I'm gonna go get some more dead rock this weekend. Also no cyano bacteria is growing. It is just coraline. Cuz the algae is not slimy

I did but only residue came out of the rock. Leftover food and green algae. Sorry I didn't reply for a while I was having too much fun for my birthday
