    Hello all,

    I have a question about what people would recommend for a CUC? I have a 10G nano...
    Ammonia = 0
    Nitrites = 0
    Nitrates = 5
    PH = 8.2
    The tank has freshly cycled, and is starting to get a pretty good slime layer on everything. I know that I should add slowly, so I am wondering what people would recommend? I am thinking about 2 turbos, a scarlet, and a cleaner shrimp.

    That sounds good. But I would wait till you have algea for the Turbo's or else there will be nothing for them to eat and they will starve

    So would you recommend adding my two clowns first, then add the cleaner crew in a few weeks?

    You can do that, i would slowly add the CUC as you see algae. But some good CUC members are turbo snails (not very many), nerite snails, astaea snail, cerith snail and nassarius snails.
