    Hi everyone. I am new to this forum and to saltwater but I have kept freshwater fish for a few years. I am going to set up a 20 gallon long reef tank this year with a royal gramma, a pink streaked wrasse, and 2 ocellaris or percula clowns. Is this stocking okay and can someone help me with stocking the CUC and corals?

    Welcome to R2R!!! I personally don't see a problem with the selection of fish.

    Can I have a zebra hermit crab, a skunk shrimp, and some trochus snails? How many trochus snails should I have?

    What about a tiger conch or a fighting conch? Can I have some nerite snails for breeding?

    Welcome to R2R! Nerites do not do much, mostly film algae. Trochus and Cerith I find are a great mix and cover most nuisances.

    What corals should I have? The light will be a Mars Aqua LED 165w or 300w or a Current USA LED 24-36 inch. Also a question about the filter. I will be using a Fluval Aquaclear 50 or 70 and how should I make a hob fuge for chaeto algae?
