My name is Kelly and I’m kind of new to the salt water life. Recently got a 16 gallon bio cube and it’s been a few months. I have Live sand, live rock, a bunch of algae, 2 nemos, snails, a shrimp and crabs. Do i need to put empty snail shells in the tank for them to grow into??

Welcome to NR! 😊

 

if you have hermit crabs they will need shells to change into as they grow.

Id like to eventually get a goby. And then as far as corals, def a frogspawn for nemos and some other little ones. Maybe a mushroom, dont know all the names yet. I have algae growing on a specific rock. Its brown and hairy, is that ok? The clean up crew seems to be doing a great job getting rid of it

A little algae at first is no big deal and quite normal. Is it that rock on the very top?

Yes it is. You can see the path of the snail

Welcome to nano-reef!


Nice live rock! Looks like great coralline coverage. Green/brown algae is normal in a new tank just keep your nitrates and phosphate low to prevent them from growing out of control. 
 

Beware of corals, they are highly addictive.

Corals are the inexpensive part for me. A friend of mine is supplying me. Looking forward to it in a couple months
