Could I get two Nano's? Petsmart has them but they dont have the 1, 2, 3, or 4 models that would also prevent from having to order online.

I think it`s just right. That`s about the depth of mine. If you want the effects of a DSB then you`ll need more.

Thanks, I guess I'll leave it at 2".

But what are the benefits of a DSB?

Well, today we went into Petsmart to return the eclipse system 3 and exchange it due to a cracked impeller housing on the filter and we decided to pick up some other stuff heres a list:

2 koralia 1's
10k bulb
actinic bulb
red sea salt
hydrometer (temporary until I order a refractometer)
bucket to mix sw in
siphon
API master saltwater test kit
stand

And thats about it I wasn't to sure what else I'll need I was thinking about getting the Reef master test kit but I figured I wouldn't need it for awhile. Petsmart had the koralia 1's now but they were sold out of nano's so I figured I'd get 2 1's and if it was too strong of a current I'd just put 1 in my 29g fw and pick up a nano.
If I need anything else please tell me.

What is base rock. I'd use all live rock so you get the added filtration.

Well, today we went to Petland to get live rock. Got 8lbs. of figi for $7.99 a pound with about 20lbs. of base rock at $2.29 a pound. While we were waiting on the fish guy that was helping a lady that was trying to decide which angelfish out of the remaing 2 that she wanted.......we looked at their display reef and my mom saw a goby and liked it so now she wants one. My question is, is there a goby that I could put in a 20g with 2 percula clowns, or is that pushing the stocking limits? Another question, Petland had coral that was 60% off like they always have when I go in there so I decided to look at it for once, some of which that I liked were duncans, BTA's, mushrooms, and zoanthids can I get all of these with my lighting when my tank becomes mature?

Are your lighting T5 or PC or CF? Let us know the wattage as well...
I think if you just gonna get a goby, it should be okay... cause the goby doesn't move as much and it's not aggressive at all...

Once you tell us your lighting, we can help you if your lighting are sufficient, from your listing, mushroom and zoanthids will do okay, but I just want to be sure.

My lighting is a 130w pc coralife aqualight. So I can have a goby and 2 percula clowns in the same tank without agression and pushing the stocking limits?
