I was looking at those catalina gobies. REALLY beautiful fish!! I would need a chiller to keep them, and then my clownfish would turn to popsicles.
Just for the record, I thought I would start with a fish only set up to get the hang of saltwater. Man oh man do I regret not getting live rock at the minimum. My fault for listening to the LFS
. REAL corals look so beautiful!!!
My two clowns are thriving in a 12 gallon. My water params are still perfect. However, I have no idea what will happen when the fish mature. That's why I am getting a larger tank soon.
Go with live sand/rock, some quality lighting, a pair of fire fish, some cleaner shrimp, hermits, snails and corals/nems. It truly will be a wonder to behold!!
BTW... My wife just got an epidural an hour ago, and is now sleeping. The boy will be born within a couple hours!!! Glad the hospital has WIFI so I can check out AA and do some quality reading
