What’s going on everyone I am upgrading to the Red Sea reefer 170 at the end of the month and wanted to see what everyone things for livestock.

Currently I have 2 clowns and 1 mandarin goby “eating frozen” curious what else I should add for live stock.

Any inputs for possibly CUC too? Thinking trocus, hermits, tuxedo urchin?

I'm about six months since lights on.

4 fish

1 Midas Blenny
1 Male Bluestar Leopard Wrasse
1 Female Flame Fairy Wrasse
1 Long Nose Hawkfish

I have a lot of corals already, tank is SPS dominant with LPS in the bottom 3rd.

I think if I am careful. I would go two more small peaceful fish. But I did not go clowns at all, so the balance is maybe different. Have no fish aggression issues so far.

Awesome that you have a mandarin eating frozen!

RE CUC.

Mexican Turbos...wow they clean and are careful and huge.
Emerald crab..has skills...may not be perfect if hungry
Pincushion Urchin, awesome addition, hilarious, great CUC, will eat you corialline but will not get it all.

For CUC, check out Pacific East Aquaculture.
