First saltwater tank
I have a 9g Fluval Flex that was recently ceaned out and is now empty. I wanted to take this opportunity to jumped into my first saltwater tank. My plan is use sand/crushed coral substrate with a live rock set up and only a couple friends, like a Blenny, Snail, Crab or Shrimper and maybe 2 Banggai Caridinals.
(I have been in the planted tank hobby for about 4 years now with tanks ranging from 5g to 110, so I know all the basics)
Couple questions off the top of my head are:
If I have a stable live rock formations do I need to gone them together just in case?
Is this an okay stock for a 9g.
How much of a leap is it to add coral frags, I don't know how they work with bioload and feedings.
I will have the tank cycle for a month or however long it needs, but I do plan on introducting Scuds while it cycles to help build a base for the Blenny to hunt food. Any and all advice would be great, thanks in advance.
