Alright so I'm pretty new to the forums and have finally gotten my 75g African Cichlid tank to where I like it, put up a video and some pics here
if any one cares to take a look....
But now my other half wants to set up a small salt water tank. So now I need to figure out where to start, I have looked at some similar post but still am not for sure but I do already have 2 10g tanks lying around and one is going to be for my cichlid nursery and the other for this project.
So just from looking around this is a list of things I need to get so far:
Tank (alread have it)
Light (for live rock does it have to be a coral life or similar tube?)
Power Head (Which I guess is just to create a current in the water?)
Instant Ocean Salt
If I am missing anything from the list let me know. And from reading around I'm guessing you cannot use tap water so what would be an alternative to that?
Then finally fish, from looking at the other post allot of people suggest gobies but from looking at them I'm not for sure if I like them to much...so would I be able to put a clark clown fish in it maybe with 1 or 2 blue leg hermit crabs and a few other invertibres? I would love to put a fiddler or red claw crab with my cichlids but they would tear them up.
