    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.

    flame will be lekker.ive got mines with corals,no issues.they appear to be one of the most reefsafe angels IMO
    maybe a 6line wrasse will be lekker aswell

    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.
