Ever since the movie, "Finding Nemo", all I have heard from my mom is, "why cant you get a pair of clowns", "you should get a pair of clowns", "your maroon doesnt look like nemo", etc. So, I have decided to get her a tank with a pair of clowns. Here comes the crazy part, 10 gallons. I realize this is a little on the small size, but I think it will work, and for cheap, too. I got a brand-new in the box filter and heater at the flea market for about $10, a tank for $9, and I am using LR
from my other tanks and a piece im going to get in a package from LR
.com. The sand will have to be from the store because I am on the west coast with no old castle. As for lighting, I am using a incandesent ficture for $20. I am replacing the bulbs with coralifes CF
that screw into the incandescent fixtures. this will give my 40 watts of light for $21. With this light I am thinking about getting a coral that looks like an anemone a.k
.a. torch or plate. However, when I was talking to someone at my marine society, he told he has sucessfully kept a bubble-tip in a ten-gallon tank for a long period of time. Is this really possible. Any advice, tips, hints, or even the occaisonal "NO NO NO
, too small of a tank" post will be appreciated.
