    Welcome! You can buy a HOB fuge or convert your filter into a make-shift fuge. I’ve done both with my first nano. For water quality purposes, I did prefer the actual HOB fuge since there was more room to work with, but it’s more expensive.

    For corals, I love my ricordia mushrooms. Nice, easy, and colorful. A good “starter” coral that you won’t want to get rid of later ;) Euphyllia are pretty hardy and nice movement, also trumpet corals.

    Good luck, and enjoy the salty side! I started with a 28g bow-front and now have a 120g display, 40g breeder clown/BTA tank, and a frag tank lol

    It grows on ya...

    They would be fine for your system

    I am not quite sure there
    Mushrooms, leathers, chalices would be a good start. what one has to look at is if the lights will support growth and one can do that with a parameter

    I would suggest a going with a sump instead of a HOB ref.

    I can’t drill the tank for a sump and I don’t have another tank. Is superglue that has cyanoacrylate safe for aquarium use?

    How many firefish gobies could I have? I was originally going to have 1 instead of the royal gramma but someone told me that the firefish would hide a lot and a royal gramma is a better choice.

    Is there any other type of blenny similar to the tail spot blenny? I don't think my lfs has them and I don't want to order online.

    Is this ok for the CUC? 1 tiger conch, 2 turbo, 2 cerith, 2 nassarius, 2 margarita, 2 astrea, 2 trochus, possibly 2-3 nerite (for breeding), 1 skunk shrimp, 1 lettuce sea slug, and 1 zebra hermit crab. Is 1 skunk shrimp and 1 zebra hermit crab enough or should I have more? Are there too many snails?
