    Hey,

    My nano is cycling and i want to keep fish and corals.

    What would you guys suggest i start with? I like the look of zoes and frog spawn but also need some info on how to feed them and what i should add to keep them healthy.

    Really want a bright colourful nano, i that helps in the selection?

    Zoas are brilliant first corals. They are bright, colourful and easy to take care of. Frog spawn is also a fairly Easy LPS. Maybe look at some blue Mushroom Anemones, different Zoas, Xenia, Green Star Polyps, Riccordeas.

    You get many different colour variations of the above soft corals and they don't require much in terms of direct feeding. As long as you feed your fish, the fish will feed the corals. (Poop)

    I still recommend that you let the cycle take it's course before risking any livestock though.

    yup, set on a six week cycle before anything goes in. Just planning the LS and corals.

    Cool, gonna go around town tomorrow and see whats available at the LFS unless any reefers will ship frags or there are generous reefers in PE..

    I'm sure you will find some kind and giving people down there! Most reefers are good folks, so they'll help you out with frags!
