Lol, thanks! Yea, I'm still working on my sump. Just planned on a basic 20 gal long sump with a coralife superskimmer, dc 9000 return and a refugium. Nothing fancy, just the basics.

Well after a few years of crazy.... I finally have some life in this tank. Right now I just have 2 clowns and 1 diamond watchman goby. Hopefully I can get a lemon peel angel and 2 purple gobys this weekend. I would really love some sort of brittle star at some point, what you all think.Click image for larger version

Careful with the firefish (im assuming this is what you mean by purple goby) as theyíll usually fight unless 100% a proven pair which is pretty impossible to tell at a store. Iíd only go with 1z

Ok good info, I first wanted 4-5 pajama cardinals in place of the purple firefish but I'm afraid the bioload might be too much. Might just go with 3?

3 cardinals would probably be fine.
