Tank looks great! Looks like it's already filled now. Surprised you didn't go with frags to grow out and there's no fish!

Just you wait until you see some amazing coral at your LFS that you can't pass up on... Going to change how you keep your tank. It happens to a lot of us. :lol:

 

A pistol shrimp goby pair would be interesting to watch!

Yeahhh i probably wont be able to resist :D And yes! Ive thought about those guys too it would be very interesting to have in a nano. Does any goby pair with the shrimp or does it have to be a certain one?

Mmm... you definitely are limited in this tank. You'll probably have to choose a goby from the family stonogobiops. You can choose between the Antenna Goby or Yasha Goby. Or if you would like something more exotic a dracula goby. These all pair up with a Randall's/Candy Cane Pistol shrimp. I do recommend a lid since they can jump, but then all fish can jump. LOL
