    128L (phew, just fits into the Nano category) ;)

    Currently has about 14kg LR, should I buy some more (tank looks a bit empty now)

    Inhabitants:
    2 Ocellaris clowns
    1 Midas Blenny

    3 Red Legged Dwarf Hermits
    3 Astrea Snails
    1 Turbo Snail
    1 Serpent starfish

    I'm not sure what else to stock it with? Was thinking possibly a flame angel (such an awesome fish) but heard they are about 50/50 when it comes to coral. I've seen them all kept with coral at the LFS though.

    Hi Matt - perhaps save up and get yourself some REALLY decent (usually VERY expensive) Fiji Premium or similar live rock, instead of going for the (usually) cheaper Kenyan. The Fiji Premium live-rock is usually far more light and porious. This can prevent possible locked detritus inside the rock, fuelling nuisance hair algae (or bryopsis algae) growth.
