Stocking 24 gallon nano opinions ..

Hi Everyone,

So now time has come to stock my 24g nano.

I currently have:
1 yellow stripe maroon clown fish
1 turbo snail left (after hermit killed 3)I don't have the hermit crab anymore.

Plans:
1 Lemon peel angel (I am aware that it is not reef safe)
1 fire fish

Need opinions on cleaning crew stocking.

Thanks

Maybe 5 snails and 5 or 6 nassirus snails to start with. You really dont need a real big crew yet as there`s probably not much in there for them yet.

Your maroon is going to take up alot of space eventually and be rather aggressive in a 24g so I would nix the angelfish.

Well, with the GSM, you probably won't be able to add another fish, they tend to get rather nasty in their old age.

They are all territorial in their own right, but maroon's and tomato's seem to be the worst and get the largest (of those available), which doesn't help. I do love maroon clowns, though You could try a Cirrhitichthys oxycephalus, Pixie hawkfish or a Cirrhitichthys falco, Falco hawkfish. These do not get large, but may try and consume shrimp. Cardinal fish are another option.
