    Guys,

    I have a 2ft doing nothing. I feel like breeding something (reef related not ganja) that I can share with fellow reefers. I don't have lights for the setup so it can't be corals.

    Was thinking of some starfish.

    I also don't want to add much to my maintenance regime as I'm overworked as is.

    Any suggestions?

    Some sites suggest a minimum tank size of 125 gallons. I have a measily 60L. I was thinking along the lines of inverts.

    Shrooms sound like a good idea.
