    sweet, anemone will lookk great with to black percs
    you can add some softies, shrooms, zoa's, leathers
    you can add some lps, frog, fox, hammer, but don't add a galaxy to nano, those sweeper tenticals will hirt nearby corals

    Don't add any tangs, they will outgrow the nano,
    Rather go for one of the pigmi angel

    large particles will trap detritus and lead to BAD nitrate problems in the future!

    LappiesReef - you can try Builder's Warehouse - ask them for "playsand".... Just remember that you will have to wash this play-sand MANY MANY times before using it in your tank (otherwise your tank/water will become WHITE with sand-dust)...
