    Hi, I have a 30 gallon aquarium which currently houses 1 green chromis, 2 clowns fish, a royal grammar and a scooter blenny.
    I also have 4 trochus snails, 5 dwarf hermit crabs and a cleaner shrimp.

    I am looking for a centre piece with the wow factor... The corals I have so far are a small toadstool, open brain coral, small photosynthetic gorgonian and a frogspawn drag of 1 head.

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    I think on fish side you cannot add anything else (still depend by your filtering). Maybe a dwarf angel - this is quite difficult as they need larger tanks in most opinions??

    On corals, depend what means "wow" for you and what water parameters / light / flow / filters you have. Can be a duncan or elegance coral. Some amazing acros, a superb anemone :) You name it.
    And for sure depend by your budget - a show stopper large coral can be at a heart stopper price as well :)

    Ok, thanks for the reply... Would a flame Angel be suitable for my aquarium in your opinion. I do plan on upgrading to a bigger tank, however that will not be until early next year

    I wouldnt do anymore fish. A BTA would look nice and be a wow factor, your clowns would like it too.

    :) - be aware that BTAs need good quality water and strong light.... Some recommend same levels as for SPS corals (of course not Ca, Mg, but NO3, PO4, light and flow)

    Seems that flames needs at least 70 g tanks... But are so nice :)

    I agree with civic, a nem would look great and are pretty hardy given your tank params are good and your tank is matured. I wouldn't add any more fish

    Let the frogspawn grow it will become a nice pice. Mine was a small frag the size of a quarter. Now its the biggest piece in the tank. Has 3 tiny heads coming in as well. Here is mine now. I added the bicolor hammer not to long ago. Going for a euphyllia dominated tank. 20160224_182054.jpg 20160224_182105.jpg

    insanereefer420, maybe I am wrong, but the two corals I see in your second pic appear to be a hammer and a torch???

    Will a torch tentecles split and have multple gowing from the same one? This one does like its starting to grow multiple pale dots off the end of it. Like a tentecle is growimg out of one. It may be. I was told frogspawn when i got it. If its a torch i guess next purchase is deff a frogspawn then.
