Here's a positive thought....

Buy a bigger tank. They cost next to nothing over there in the states I've heard.

Think about your fish.

If you can't afford the correct size tank for your pets you shouldn't be involved In the hobby.

Let's put it like this, I've just started a 20G long as a supplemental tank. I have 20lbs of live rock in there and a pair of clowns.

Let me tell you, there's not much swimming room, that's before I add coral.

Well that says it all I'm afraid sir.

No effort or time, I'd give up making fish unhappy.

Space is workable, but effort and time? Don't even bother.

It's not about judging young man.

You answered your own question, you don't have the time or effort for the hobby, there's no shame in that.

The shame is that this hobby takes lots of both and as I've said before, it may be time to evaluate what you are doing again.

Get some FW fish if you want fish sir.

My son has a tank that he hardly ever touches other than throwing a bit of food in and everything in it just keeps going, they seem indestructible to me, far more up your street.

Tell you what, put 6 fish in, when it all goes pear shaped and crashes, don't come back here asking us why your tank crashed.

I bid you good day sir, over and out.
