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

Corals only. School doesnt allow fish. Corals or anything like that.

What should I have as media for an ac50?

I just use the sponge, carbon and biomedia. The stuff that comes with the filter.

Youre gonna need some decent lights to just grow coral. This is a a regular 10g tank correct? 20inches in length?

Should be. The 30" lights are hard to come by but the 20" ones are just as hard to find. What kinda corals are you looking to keep? That will dictate the lighting

Hopefully the basic ones. Still doing lots of research. Know any to start? I will definately need to cycle my tank right? At least lr and ls will be cheaper. Also what are "frags"? fragments that grow? I have been looking at that pet place since I may try to take a train out there and not ship anything living.

Frags are just "fragments" of larger mother colonies of corals. They just cut or slice them off and glue them to plugs. Some grow really really fast too.

Zooa's, mushrooms and leathers and LPS too. All good corals and basic too. lemm see what I can find in 20" length. Do you have a budget?
