my 5 gallon update

So after cycling my 5 gallon tank for about 2 weeks with live rock, my tank is ready to go and added 3 cerith snails yesterday. They have been active. I have observed them borrowing themselves in the sand as well as being on the glass and on the heater. I am thinking give my tank 5-7 days with them in there and if everything is good l I will add a goby!

What type of goby? Clown gobys are the only fish that could go in there but just ONE.

Yup, only the clown goby really - I have a yellow one and it's awesome! Can do a couple of cool inverts tho. Is this your first salt tank? Planning on a reef?

Yup it is my first one. I am doing a simple saltwater too start, and see how I like it. As for why it is a 5 gallon, I had a 5 gallon laying around the house doing nothing so I decided to put it to use.

I agree with fishman, that goby gets 3". You could possibly get away with a red hi fin/ pistol shrimp pair

Bribo, you think i could get one for my 3g? My goby hides all day in the rock and only comes out for brine shrimp.
