I got puffer fish, angels, and butterfly fish.

I couldn’t take it anymore. All the fish I want were not reef safe, and I care more about fish than corals (even though I love corals).

Tank is 300g and I have a sand bed.

What do I do regarding clean up crew? Since the livestock I’m having will eat invertebrates etc.

I have a lot of algae rock grazers. My issue is the detritus and waste. In addition to siphoning the sandbed, is there any inhabitant that can help me out?

I plan on getting a lion fish as well, but my main emphasis is on the angels and butterfly fish.

Right now I am using a high-flow (24”) overflow box, protein skimmer, and a UV sterilizer in my 150 FOWLER, feed very heavily, and hardly have to clean the glass. So thankfully, I am skipping the CUC. They wouldn’t make it past my Clown Trigger, for one.
