Well this isn't the first time I've planned a reef aquarium. I was planning on a 30g a long time ago (some of you might remember my thread) but I just don't have the space for one that big. However, I have a perfect spot for a 20 long aquarium, and I think it'd be a good size for me just to introduce myself to reefs and see if I like it or not. My fowlr
is starting to bore me, so I think around Christmastime I'll start off this aquarium. However, I'd like to start planning now.
So currently in my 10g fowlr
I have a purple firefish, a baby clown goby, two scarlet skunk shrimp, a blood fire shrimp, two nassarius snails (however they've been dying lately. I used to have more
), and a hermit crab. What can I add? I'd like to get more nassarius snails and maybe some cerith snails, and also something to take care of algae. And can I add a pair of ocellaris clowns as well? I'd also like a lot of invertebrates, so shrimp, snail, and crab suggestions are appreciated.
As for corals, I just want to keep it simple. Zoanthids, mushroom corals, and maybe some other softies. Suggestions? I also want to keep favite brain corals. I've always admired it and would love to give it a try.
And my final question is supplies. Suggestions on lighting, filtration, and buffers are appreciated.
Hope I can get some help. Thanks!
