    Sad but true... my starfish had died together with my clown fish. I guess the starfish was very sensitive to the water parameters.. and shortly after starfish died, my clown fish also died together with it.. Wonder was it because he had ate the flesh and got infected...

    Now my tank only has the blue damsel (the original) and a blue velvet damsel...

    Will monitor a while b4 adding other LS in next wk.

    Hi qingshun, am sadden to know about the death of your chocolate chip starfish & your active clownfish... [Is there a need to 'clean' your tank or change your water in case there are any infectious stuffs left behind by the starfish...] Hope you'll not give up on this interesting & fun hobby but in fact come back stronger...

    For mine, currently have 1 common clownfish, 1 red scarlet hermit crab, 1 red (6-legged ) starfish, 1 cleaner skunk shrimp, some zoas, some red macroalgae in my 24cm cube GEX tank set up for about a month+ already... Doing weekly water change with top-ups every few days...

    Thought of adding 1 or 2 more fish inside to accompany my lonely clownfish... but dunoe what nano fish can be added in to live in harmony with it though... Any recommendations from any reefers experts here are welcomed!!

    for a nano tank, any sudden changes in the water parameter i.e dead of a fish or coral may casue a diatom or spike in amonia.. which casue fish die of..

    so it is always adviceable to start off with the largest marin tank you can afford.. and a having a good skimmer helps to control this as well..
    hope this helps.

    Me? Well I've removed all of my live rock and found a few crabs. In place of the liverock, I've used some pvc pipes and eggcrate to act as a rack to hold the coral. I don't have a digital camera though.

    Did you remove the crabs? Any nasty looking worms?

    Hi bro, didn't know you got a nano reef I had a 3ft marine before and I find that clown fish can be kept with many variety of fishes but they are less tolerant with clownfish of different species. So I would mix a big percula, a big skunk clownfish with a small tomato (semi-aggressive) and it works

    You could add a purple firefish goby. Their colours are really vibrant. Or a yellow watchman goby, they're less active but they have this grumpy face that just looks funny, it gets funnier when the cleaner shrimp tries to clean it up and it will look even grumpier.

    Have fun reefing

    Just curious, what fishes you intend to keep.
    Last time I kept marine, a non-fish setup can also be very nice and easier to maintain.
