I currently have astreas snails, trochas snails, nassarius snails, 2-3 hermit crabs, 2 clownfish, a Royal gramma, a flame hawkfish, goniopora, hammer coral and several bubble tip anemones in my 32 gallon biocube. What’s the best shrimp to buy for my tank size that will work with the inhabitants I currently have? I am aware that the flame hawkfish may screw up the whole equation but let’s pretend I didn’t mention him. I’ll try and neutralize him. Lol!

The Hawkfish is a big risk from my understanding. But if you want a shrimp, I would add a Skunk Cleaner. They will stay visible for the most part, and actually provide a service to your inhabitants.
You’re right. I’ve been trying to talk my 8 and 11 yo into letting me take the hawkfish back to the store but they’re not agreeing with my requests. Lol!

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
