I’m a month in also and have nothing in yet. I’m considering this week to get a few CUC and wait a little and then get 2 clowns. Haven’t really considered any corals at all but I do like pulsing Xenia’s

How are you getting along with your CUC? I see you’ve got about 15 Snails and 3 hermits. Do you think that’s the right amount for the Fluval Evo? I’m getting my CUC this week.

Also how’s the Xenia? I also want one
