Looks like a Maroon Clownfish. I wouldn't put any other fish in that tank as Maroons are very aggressive clownfish.

That's what it is. When it gets a little bigger I'll trade it for a fire fish or something like that. Got ideas?

If you ever get a deeper sandbed you could get something like a Yasha Goby and small pistol shrimp or get a yellow head jaw fish.

Firefish are notorious carpet surfers so you would need a glass canopy or wire mesh cover.

Hello.

Nice tank. I recommend you to put more rock before you ad fishes. Your tank can hold only one more fish and I think is too much. I have a 20 gal tank and I have only 2 fishes a few snails, a crab, a shrimp, and a ophiura sea star. I have mushrooms corals in majority and I have with them like 8 years. You need to be patient I hope you success with this tank. I recommend you only keep this clown fish and buy other small invertebrates. Or take out the clown fish and buy 2 small fishes but first buy more cured rock. Do you have skimmer? I leave you a link so you can see my tank.

Hey thanks. No I don't have a skimmer. I'm going to trade in the clown for something else not sure what yet.

Try to get a good skimmer. You will need it. Good look

Any pics of the planted shrimp setup?

And how do you feel about the tank after having it for some time? Any upgrades?

The filter that comes with the tank is very small so I got a bigger one and the light that comes with the tank is for a reef so I got a plant life led light. You can see the pic in my other thread in the nano section.

I did sw for many years and starting with such a small system has a lot of pitfalls. I started a 2.5 gal system when I found a hitchhiker mantis shrimp in my coral propagation system. I didn't want to throw him in the sump so I bought the 2.5. I used a Tom aquatic mini canister filter, and the motor from a very small HOB filter as a power head for more movement. A few pieces of rock, some zoa's, Paly's and mushrooms. 25% water chanes every two weeks. It was easy to maintain because I had three other large very well established systems running. If I was going to do it with a tank like yours there is a company that makes HOB filters with a built in 3 watt UV sterilizer. I would also get a pico protine skimmer, several companies make them. In the HOB I would not run ceramic, just filter floss and carbon. The live rock in the tank is taking care of the biological filtration and the skimmer will remove the larger detritus. I didn't have any evap issues. I used a 13 watt coralife CF hood that acted as a lid and fit perfectly.
