How much ?


I have a 30 gal tank. Have 40 lb live rock, 10 lb live sand. Cyclone skimmer, 8 watt UV sterilizer, mechanical filter with bio wheel and fluidized bed filter.
I plan to have a small (1 sq inch) yellow tang and a same size blue tang and a very small clown (you can see thru it).
How many corals and inverts should I go for to keep water in good shape and optimum for corals ?
I was thinking on the lines of 5 to 10 snails
and 2 small starfish. Is this ok in addition to the fish that I am going to keep ?


Sounds like you pretty much got it in control. Git some snails and crabs (Scarlet Reef are the best in my opinion) Just make sure theres enough algea for the amount of inverts you git. There's clean up crews on this page that you could order that would do the job.. you can order one for your size of tank. just be carefull with the starfish, they will eat coralline off your live rock. Serpeant and Brittle stars would be best.


Is this good package for the above setup ? Will these take care of algae
