Looks like its in full swing. Get some hermit crabs to help with that algae!
I was told to stay away from crabs, because they can cause issues in the future? (Specifically with corals?)

I would love to get a couple of hermits, but I was holding off because I was told not to.

I really want a hermit now!! So two would work well in my tank?

I do have a Turbo snail in there now and I was planning on getting one more.

Here is my updated stock list: (most of which I haven’t got yet)
  • 2x DaVinci Clownfish
  • 1x Royal Gramma
  • 1x Watchman Goby
  • 2x Turbo Snails
  • 2x Scarlet Skunk Shrimp
  • 2x Hermit Crabs (I was looking into blue-legged and strawberry)
Does this look good?

I hope my paycheck comes in soon, so I can get more CUC. I can’t wait for the shrimp, but I am super pumped for the hermits!! :cool::D

Sponge is fine for now , but I try not to put my hands in the tank as much just in case I have oils or something on my hands so this is what I use it’s a magnet and you pull and push on the outside and it cleans the inside
