What type of fish are you going to be getting? I would love a nano with a Pistol Shrimp and Goby pair.

I will most likely stock it with 2 Ocellaris Clowns or how ever its spelled. A Firefish, a Flame Angel, and one more which I can't decide. HELP ME DECIDE something bluish. My clean up crew will consist of the 2 Peppermints, a Fire Shrimp, maybe snails, and hermits.

Nice. Be careful with the angel some are not reef safe. But of course it depends on it's attitude. Neon Gobies are really pretty and neat. Maybe a Wrasse of some sorts or Yellowhead Jawfish?

The Flame Angel I have been watching is in a coral tank and doesn't seem to care about the corals whatsoever. I mite pick him out later down the road if he's still there. But I also like the Coral Beauty too, he mite be a choice. Wrasses are hard to pick out, some are picky some get too big, and some are plain jerks. I was thinking a Fuzzy Dwarf Lion but that severely limits my fish count.

Oh, okay. Coral Beauties are nice. I have one. What about Mandarin goby?

The Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish will also eat anything that fits in its mouth. Depending on the size of you Peppermints. I wouldn't suggest getting him.

I've heard Mandarin Gobys are a bit tricky to keep and they are very sensitive. Yes the Fuzzy Dwarf will require that I remove the Shrimp and get larger ones, not to mention the color in the tank will be cut down.

I KNOW all the stores make me drool, I have a 55 gallon that I wanted to use for saltwater but the floor boards of my room will bow in if I put it up and my basement is filled with my moms stuff and isn't anywhere near completion for a family room. It would have been cheaper too I have everything I need from my old tank AND IT WAS FREE.
