Heres some pics of my 14 gallon biocube. It's currently holding a pair of clowns and I'm thinking about adding a pair of neon gobies or a just one neon goby and a skunk cleaner shrimp. Let me know what you think I hsould add to complete this set up.

I like the formation of the liverock. Nice.

I agree, That rock work is pretty killer.

Thanks! It took me awhile to get the rocks to balance out and everything. The left half is one huge rock that has to be about 8 or 9 lbs(with the exception of one small piece) that I had to really put a lot of weight against to make it so it wouldn't all over.

Nice aquascaping :thumbsup:

I've found that as clowns mature and pair up they protect their territory aggressively. Any fish smaller than the clowns would probably be harassed to death in a 14 gallon tank.

Once the tank matures you should get an anemone for your clowns.

Ehhhh I don't really want to have to mess with that. I think I'm gonna get a frogspawn soon and hope they grow fond of it.

I have heard of them hosting in frogspawn so it just might work.

My pair of false perc's host in a very large frogspawn that I have....some will host in anything.

BAD idea (IMO) to get an anemone in a tank that small...GOOD idea (again IMO) on the frogspawn!

I plan on stocking my 12 gallon the same way. I have started with just a single small neon goby and will add two small perculas once the goby gets settled in. He has a ton of crevices and hiding places that he frequents so even if the clowns get aggressive towards him then he can run and hide. He has already taken to the black seperating wall in my nano, he must be able to stick to it better than the glass?

I say go for the goby, especially if you have some small crevices that only he can fit into.

Nice Nano It's like a dream to have one that looks that nice. Nice JOB

Well thanks for the compliments, I just bought the stand for the tank and bought the frogspawn from a local reefer. It's actually a torch coral and a frogspawn coral, he had them next to eachother and I guess they morphed together into one really cool looking coral, so I'll have pics of that up soon. I'm gonna be moving to school and bringing the tank with me on Monday so I'll get pics up either Monday night or Tuesday with the new stand and the frogspawn/torch coral.
