Biocube 8 gallon build thread. First time need lots of pointers!

Hey guys, welcome to the build thread.

I got the 8 gallon tank about two hours ago. I mixed a cup of salt to go in with it. And filled it up.

I want a pair of clown fish and maybe a pair of mudskippers ( the one that doesn't need air to breath.
Does that seem reasonable?

Hello,

As stated above, even a single clown wouldn't due in that size tank. Mudskippers need access to air and I believe they are brackish

Yeah, clowns really can't thrive in anything smaller than 20 gallons.

Hello,

No, not even a the smallest clown is small enough for a 8 gallon, not even a 10 gallon either.

You could have a goby and some inverts. Like shrimp and snails.

i would even say two tiny fish, and I mean small. Like a clown goby and maybe something else.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks carey and everyone else. Do you guys think a one cup of salt for 8 gallons is enough? i have a feeling it's not, but i don't want to go through the roof.
