My current stocking is 1 firefish goby, and 2 blastomussa corals. I plan to add a few peppermint shrimp, and some astrea snails to help deal with my diatom outbreak, also some GSP to the island rock in the back, and possibly a green candy cane coral. I had the lights on a bright white setting, and after doing some reasearch learned that it should be mostly blue. Hopefully this helps the issue. Has anyone had a good experience with vibrance aquarium cleaner? Aso far as feeding I was adding a few pe mysis pellets per day, but im switching to mostly frozen baby brine as i heard it produces less nitrates. The equipment is low tech theres no sump, i have i seachem tidal 35 filter/ skimmer, and a koralia 425 powerhead. The lighting is a nicrew 100 watt hyper reef LED. will also be using a fluval breeder box as a refugium for macroaglae. Any comments are welcome.

Peppermint shrimp could cause issues with blastomussa

Does anyone know if the firefish is compatible with a yellow banded possum wrasse in a tank this size? theres a few caves in the tank

I would't worry about the two. Both are pretty passive. Also, check out the Cryptic/Pink Streak Wrasse with its big buggy eyes. (Same size as the possum, and also a super mellow personality).

I added some GSP to the tank, Also 2 Astrea snails. I got some coraline from my LFS and crushed it into a fine power and added it to my tank to hopefully seed the aquarium with coraline spores. The GSP retracted after a vigorous coral rx dip, as well as a freshwater dip, hoping to see it cover the island at the back of the tank.
