    i am cycling my brand new bio cube 14 i would like some advice on some of the best and easiest corals for a tank this size as well as cleaning crew and fish stock. i really want a clown. ( i know a 14 is a bit small for them but everyone who i talked to says they do great in the bio cube 14 )

    I would suggest zoes and mushrooms to start with. The are pretty hardy and can do well in smaller spaces. Once your tank matures a little more, there are different types of pallys and some green star polyps that would work well in a small tank. Even tho they are easier corals to care for, you still need to maintain your water parameters which become even more important in a small aquarium. The below link will help you with that

    For a CUC, I would suggest around 12 asteria snails. Maybe a single emerald crab or a single hermit crab if the snails can not keep up with the algae. This recommendation is based on the assumption that you have a good amount of live rock for a 14 gallon tank.

    I would also suggest doing a little more actual research on the clown fish. They don't belong in anything smaller than a 20 gallon tank. I personally would not keep them in anything smaller than a 29 gallon. A 14 gallon just won't give them the space they need long term. I would have hoped that after receiving the same feedback on your other thread that you might have looked into this for yourself.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I have a 55 gallon and I'm thinking it's a little restrictive to my Tomato Clown. These Clowns grow fast and I've just about had it with her sawing on me every time I put my hand in the tank. Her teeth are getting larger and sharper every week.
    Unless you have an exchange program with your lfs where you can exchange your growing Clown for a smaller version, I agree with Cliff, stay with what fits.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    thanks guys that was good info i think ill go with gobies! :) a couple more questions though. ( sorry haha) ive had my tank cycling with live sand since friday but its been cycling with live sand and about 11 pounds of live rock since saturday. when i tested on sunday my nitrites and nitrates were zero while my ammonia was somwhere between 0 and 0.25 ppm today when i got off work (around 6:30 pm) my ammonia and nitrites were 0 ppm while my nitrates were between 0 and 5 ppm (closer to 5) i am wondering is my cycle already over? its only been since friday.
