Hey guys, I'm new to this site and new to nano tanks. I just fired up my 8 gallon nano yesterday. I'v had a few bigger tanks but got rid of them all because i moved out to alberta! Ever since i sold them iv wanted another one. I plan on moving back to N.B so i just decided to start a nano for something to look at i have been missing my 50 gallon cube like crazy!!!... Hopefully this will give me my fix! Any suggestions what to put in it after i cycle it??...

I was thinking a small pair of black clowns would look good?

Open to suggestions!!

hey i have a black clown and one of those yellow clown gobies. i have found that with the nano tanks, the clean up crew is key.

NO NO NO! no clownfish for a 8g. clown goby yes. think minimal bioload.

get small fish/inverts. here is a quick list off the top of my head
-clown goby
-citron goby
-neon goby
-trimma goby
-tail spot blenny
-panda goby
-rainfords goby( can be picky eater)
-sexy shrimp
-or other small ornamental shrimp
