I agree with @fishguy242 for algae control with a tomini.

If it was me, since you don’t have a top I would go

1x tomini
1x springeri damsel
1x copper band

That is me though lol.
sounds like a plan. the tomini and springeri will be first time for me.

I love my springeri in my frag tanks. I don’t have pests, but have a crap ton of pods. It helped with that so much. Not that pods are bad, but in large quantities they annoy the heck out of zoas.

I used a different LFS for fish vs corals & supplies. Coral prices went up significantly, can't blame them - still get some stuff there and supplies there. Fish place didn't raise their prices and ended up having to close :(

Totally understand supply/demand & the covid airfare thing, but the prices have gone way up. The average box price went up $100 - $200. If you get 15-20 fish in there that's around $10 per fish, but some fish doubled in price. Doesn't add up. I understand the margins are pretty small in fish stores, but if you price your inventory too high, it sits.... hard to maintain a business if inventory doesn't move.
