Are Trigger fish hard to keep?

...They are very cool looking....and how many Clownfish can you put in a 10 gallon tank?? How many Betas can you keep in a 10 gallon tank too??

You are not trying to put the trigger in the 10 gal are you?

If I had to guess about the clowns... 1. Live aquaria says they need a min 20 gal tank. Other types of clown fish need 30 gals.

Why wouldnt you put a Clown in a tank any less than a 10 gallon tank anyway?

There are suggested guidelines for tank sizes. There are a variety of factors that go into these recommendations and you will often get mixed recommendations. Check out places like liveaquaria.com or blue zoo.com for a general idea.

A 10g saltwater tank would be difficult to maintain and keep all parameters in check. I wouldn't suggest it as a starter tank.

Are you talking freshwater betas? Are you taking male or females? Males need to be kept single, but yes, you can do multiple females together.
