    Nano Fish with Small Mouths Feeding Issue

    I’ve had this issue with small fw fish, usually I’d turn the flow off, feed any boisterous fish, then put crushed pellet foods on the surface and force them to sink. You could try live foods as well. YCG May take a while before taking prepared, it’ll probably hunt pods until then.

    Sounds good, there’s tons of cool inverts you could add. In addition to cleaner shrimp you could add small snails, anemone shrimp, Pom Pom crabs, and others.

    Slight confusion with stocking levels

    With you’re filtration, territory is the limiting factor. A group of threadfin cardinals and a blue assessor would work, if you don’t experience any nutrient issues for a while then you could try clowns. Wouldn’t put a dwarf angel in a 30 with so many others though. Also add the clowns last, as they’re the most territorial.

    Stocking for 14g Peninsula Ideas

    Possum wrasse and a cool benthic fish would be cool

    black ocellaris clownfish

    If they’re still spawning they’ll be worth quite a lot, might have to look around marketplaces of forums to see previous asking prices

    Unique Stonogobiops nematodes (hybrid?)

    Probably a genetic thing or it grew an extra after an injury. Neat specimen

    Wrasse: Cirrhilabrus Lanceolatus?

    The lunatus is a better deal, they’re still more uncommon than the Isosceles, which is now the most common member of that entire complex. Their also the best fairy wrasse for a smaller tank because of their small size and somewhat cryptic nature.

    What Happened To The Blue Spotted Jawfish?

    They’re probably collected seasonally

    Mixing Different Breeds

    Depends on the variants and/or species you want to mix and what setup they’ll be going in.

    I’d avoid an urchin in such a small tank, they tend to just uproot frags and eat coralline anyways lol. Same goes for the emerald, they can get kinda big and become annoying. Smaller/more peaceful crabs like Pom Pom crabs or porcelain (anemone) crabs are great. Theres tons of other cool nano inverts, especially shrimp. If you want coral that doesn’t become take up too much space you could stick to encrusting species.

    16 Gallon Stocking Question

    Wouldn’t recommend that, even if the dragonet is eating prepared foods it’s better to have a larger system or at least a refugium with them imo. Considering you have a skimmer, you should be fine adding a small species of goby that is less likely to be bullied by other tankmates, shrimp Gobies and their symbiotic pistol shrimps are always great additions.

    Zebra Barred Dartfish and Tilefish

    They might be active because you don’t have any boisterous tank mates, which is great. I’m sure the tilefish likes having the fart fish as company too. Make sure they get multiple feedings and have a sandbed or a container with fine sand so the tilefish can burrow. The dartfish can be kept in there long term, as an adult the tilefish will need more space. Heres a good article on long term care for tilefish, not sure if there’s any info on if they’re compatible with small inverts. https://www.advancedaquarist.com/2010/9/fish

    San Francisco good lfs

    I’d recommend stopping by Aqua forest Aquaria, it’s not a reef store, but they have awesome ada nature aquariums. If you can, definitely try to go to the Academy of Sciences/Steinhart aquarium. Plenty of awesome reef exhibits. Most of the stores I know are in the east bay.

    Fish for 30L help decide- take 2, midas blenny

    A fang blenny would be a good option, they don’t get nearly as large as Midas blennies.

    Glad to see someone got some skunk clowns! Probably the most underrated clownfish out there

    24G invert aquapod fish suggestions

    Flame angel would be a bit big in a 24 gallon, if you can find one a golden aurinatus dwarf angel could work, as they’re a smaller and more cryptic species. For inverts, a squat lobster would be cool, and there’s tons of obscure anemone shrimp. Periclimenes and Urocaridella shrimp are great options. Blue coral shrimp will also work, and they aren’t as aggressive as their relatives. If you get an sps colony, a Trapezia crab would be a cool addition. Other options include urchins, certain nudibranchs, certain star fish, anemones, and feather dusters.

    Yellow Priolepis Goby

    They’re very cryptic, generally they’ll just hide and eat pods.

    5 fish in NanoCube 28?

    Maybe by other rock dwellers, but the other fish in the tank are pretty peaceful besides the clown, and none of them will share the same territory as the goby because they’re open water fish.

    5 fish in NanoCube 28?

    You should be fine, neon gobies aren’t going to get into any fights most likely.

    Would you buy this wrasse?

    Most rare fish in the hobby aren’t rare, usually they’re just not imported for various reasons, the Lennardi wrasse is a good example. They aren’t endangered, but because they’re only found in NW Australia in protected areas. Another interesting characteristic imo is just how crazy they are as proper adults, I don’t think there’s any in captivity that are full grown foot long adults with full blue/yellow coloration like this.

    Help me finalize my fish choices.

    Good choices, the only change I’d make is replacing the tiger pistol stomp with the smaller randalls pistol shrimp. They’re better suited for nanos and won’t disrupt corals on the sandbed as much, plus they’re more peaceful. Otherwise the firefish and goby are great choices, just make sure to qt them.

    🐠🦐Stocking a 9 Gallon Drop-Off Tank 🦐🐠

    Firefish themselves are very peaceful, often timid, and should be kept with peaceful tankmates.

    🐠🦐Stocking a 9 Gallon Drop-Off Tank 🦐🐠

    You could keep a pair of clowns in there, but eventually they'd need to be moved out IMO. A good minimum tank size for clowns would be a 20g as that's what most breeders use. You could keep a firefish and another small fish in there, kinda depends what you want. There's plenty of small species of gobies and blennies that don't require sand that'll do well.

    Custom 20g Zoa Garden

    Nice setup, nice to see some yellow cardinal fish! Such an underrated species.

    In the fresh tank, take the java ferns and tie them to the wood or keep the rhizomes out of the substrate. They should grow like weeds, even with stock lighting.
