Any stocking ideas for this tank? So far I've seen one fish on liveaquaria that can go in an 8 gallon and i dont even remember what that was anymore. I want some inverts, but im not sure what on that part either lol. i really want a cleaner shrimp though, and i really like the little green crabs, cant remember what those are called. are they reef safe?

Clown gobies, eviota gobies, trimma gobies, most shrimp gobies. Um a bicolor or tail spot blenny would probably be fine. For inverts the ones you listed are fine. The green is probably an emerald crab

Yeah the watchman gobies actually get pretty big. The beauty of such a small tank is you get to see the smaller gobies a lot better than in a big tank. The one bigred mentioned above is beautiful! My favorite are yahas but they're $$$

Yeah, API tests are really only good for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.

I haven't found too much inaccuracies with them. I use Red Sea and I like them!

Just dod my first water test, results are:
Ph 8.0
Ammonia 8.0
Nitrite 5.0
Nitrate 20
Salinity is .025

What brand would you recommend bigred?

Also my lights came in and i love the way it looks! Can't wait for the cycle to end. What kind of light schedule does everyone use?
