Hey guys! I am new here and am thinking of starting a ten gallon nano reef with about 15 lbs of LR and a 4" DSB along with a korila nano and a HOB filter made to a DIY refugeum. for stocking I was thinking of a porsilen crab, 2 blue leg hermits, 4 sexy shrimp, some misc snails and a goby. for coral I had planned lots of zoas, some mushrooms, xenia, lether and plate. not shure of lighting yet. should start within 2-3 months any advice?

Yes I have some advice; get a bigger tank. Smile
At least 29-30 gallons will get you off to a much better start. Welcome and it sounds like you are thinking ahead which is very good.
Please see Myth No. 1 here, best wishes for your success:
