Nassarius snails are good for that. Also your hermit crabs.

For a 30 gal tank, right? I would get maybe 5 or 6 if you already have a bunch of hermits. They'll keep the top of your sand turned over too. Very beneficial little critters to have.

Depends on how much you are ready to spend. Since you said you wanted a pair of ocellaris clowns, Iíd try to get them first. The easiest way to get a mated pair is to buy a pair that are already together, but this also costs more. I got two baby ocellaris clowns, making sure one was slightly bigger than the other, and was lucky that they successfully became a mated pair. Clowns are very hardy fish, so they make a good fish for a newly cycled tank.

I would wait on getting a watchman goby until the tank matures a little bit, so he has a better food source. Same goes for any lawnmower or starry blennies. And I would make the midas blenny you said you want the last fish in the tank, to limit any aggression he might be prone to.

Do I have to add both clowns at the same time for them to pair? Or if I add one now then one in a week will they still pair?

Just got 2 percula clowns at my lfs and a rock with 3 little red mushrooms. I couldn't resist it for 10 bucks! But... Im floating the bag right now and while examining it, I noticed a really tiny worm on the rock. Not sure if it's good or bad. What should I do?

You should dip all your corals in a iodine solution.

It's most likely just a bristle worm. They are not bad, despite what some people may say. They will just scavenge and eat detritus. If you can get a pic, we might be able to give you a better idea what to expect.

MBliss81 I can't find it anymore but it was very very tiny. It was the diameter of a really tiny feather duster tube but about a half inch long.
