Right now I’m working on setting up my first saltwater 10g nano. I wanted to put some inverts in but I had a few questions first.
1.) what kind??? My LFS has turbo snails but I don’t think much else. I live in a small area with few other pet shops but I could try to find something else if the turbo snails aren’t a good fit
2.) my tank has dry rock in it as live rock is not very accessible to me. I’ve seen that a lot of inverts feed on algae. How would they survive in my tank without algae? I could potentially obtain a small piece of live rock (they sell small 1.5lb pieces at LFS) or could I buy some sort of food instead?
3.) if turbo snails aren’t a good match then what should I do? Should I not add inverts at all? How would this affect my tank?

i think you can buy coepods online.
they are cool little guys. maybe also get a macro lens with that LOL
can macro-algae and algae grow in a 10g?
maybe small tiny shrimps or other tiny invertebrates
