God bless family just decided to stop beating myself over the head trying to figure out what to stock in my new setup which completed cycle. So, as mentioned above it’s JBJ 45 with minimal live rock x2 media towers which I run x 2 phosguard, x2 purigen, x2 chemipure elite, x 2 marine pure bioball pouches. Tunze 9004 skimmer, and yes x2 LOL Jebao OW-25 and VIPRASPECTRA 165w 300w LED HANG OVER LIGHT. Oh! and of course the factory x2 return pumps. I decided to ask you guys because I’m sure you have cross this path before. I was thinking harem!!!! to small, predatory( which I like) bit messy though. I like the dwarf lion fishes and frog fish. So, family I trust in your judgement. One day I will have a 220 and space limitations will be resolved lol but until then I enjoy my humble 24 and newer 45? Be blessed and stay safe family here are some pics of my nano 24 and newer 45 running but waiting for fish and your advice. P.S. I had to add the photo bomber my bulldog and son KOA

A harem of clowns look nice with a tank full of anemones... but the tank needs to mature more for that.

Yeah Ik more time needed for maturity. I’m happy tank chemistry heading in right direction. I was thinking about x2 fuzzy dwarf lionfish with plenty corals for camouflage!!!!! My jbj 24 is 3 years old which I had bioballs in sump for a while x2 pouches which I transferred to newer jbj 45 together with some of the live rock. I also added 6000 amphipods and copepods which are doing great!!!! I also introduce x5 jumbo trochus snails so far so good. I thought from what I have read that harem need to be at least 60g cube for atleast 15 clowns to tone down aggression? Thanks for reply!!

I've never set up a harem tank, but you could probably get some good advice searching the Clown sub forum. I've seen posts from others who have done it.

Subs like you are of to a good start. Trochus snails eat a lot, so you may need to supplement them with some nori on a rock of you don't have a lot of algae.
