Hiya people of the reef!..
Its been such a nice welcombe to the site after my intro entry. Iv won my somewhat better half round to the Idea of letting me spend more money and set up my 4' Tank but she has one stipulation and that is for a Smaller Aquarium for her stocked with only shrimp/Crabs.
I will mostlikely still run it as a sumped tank or at least a canister filter.

Any advice on size Aquarium or stocking?

Many thanks
Azul

How small?
5 Gallons, Porcelain Crab and 3-5 sexy shrimp, zoas, rics, RFAs, gorgonians would look nice

130L/ 33G ish. Is that the small tank?

I had a sexy trio in a 2.5G/12L and they could be hard to spot

ah yes thats likely the case.. hmm I could save some money then and give her a nice little desk top rather than a full aquarium (more for mine) :).. when you kept them in your 5Gal what system did you have in place for them?
