    How nano is nano?

    If the tank is more than 10g, you could also look into firefish, tailspot blennys, and one of the smaller gobies like a blue nano. Clowns can be territorial and I see a lot of people on FB groups who regret starting off with clowns because they are such bullies. It's better to start off with other species and let them get accustomed to their tank before adding a clown or two.

    A lot of anemones get too large for nano tanks. If they move around a lot, you risk them killing your corals. Rock flower nems are great for smaller tanks because they stay put and have beautiful colors/patterns.

    You can put all manner of other inverts into a nano setup. A couple dozen dwarf cerith snails, a pair of trochus, three or four thor amboinensis (sexy shrimp), and some pom pom or porcelain crabs would work well together in a 10+ gallon tank.
