Is this really a serious inquiry. It is clear that you have no research what so ever. First clownfish should not be in a 10 gal tank. Neither should a nem for that matter.

First off I know I have research to do. And as for a 10 gallon I have seen many people have clownfish in a 10 gallon

But it does not make it right.

First off, don't let anyone tell you your inquiry isn't serious. You're obviously trying to learn, so just ignore that. Second, I have a pair of clowns and an anemone my 10 gallon that are happy and thriving. Granted, I am starting a 55 to put them in and I'm getting rid of the anemone for aggression reasons, they're doing just fine. Also, I use just a HOB filter on my 10 gallon and have had no problems. I would suggest a power head though. That's my next big investment for my nano.

This setup will be temporary until I can invest in a better setup. I almost bought a 40 gallon reef setup all I needed was the fish but as I mentioned earlier my landlord freaked out on me when I asked. In my lease it says only 10 gallon per room. we got a 20 gallon in the bedroom and she allows me to keep it but I have to get a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood to put under the desk and make some sort of a pan to catch the water incase it leaks. Working on that this week

No problem. I'm very new to saltwater, so I can only give advice based on my small amount of experience. I hope you get to have a bigger reef! I thought just having a 10g nano would do it for me....nope. Within a week I was on Craigslist buying a 55 gallon to convert. Lol. Enjoy!

Well my lease is for another year so I'm stuck until then. I'm building a platform with kinda a 1 lip all the way around it and its going to have a slope where it will drain inside the platform. When I will have a pump I can turn on and hook a house to it and drain it in the tub. Then I'm going to carpet the platform to match the floor. I just have to make sure it will hold 20 gallons of water. I'm hoping when I show it to my landlord he will be happy
