Hey everybody! I'm going to start my first saltwater tank, a 5g nano! I'm new to saltwater so I'll need help with the build. Right now I have a hang on filter, a hood with a small bulb, and the 5g tank. Thanks!

For fish you won't have many options you can go to liveaquaria.com and narrow the search to 5 gallon minimum and pick out what you like then we can build around that since its always easier if you have a certain direction before you begin

You'll need to get atleast a 10 but I would reccomend a 20 for a clown. Look into the gobies maybe jawfish

Catalina goby requires temperate waters in the high 60s so you'll need a chiller if you wanna go that route and the fire fish I think require a larger tank also. Is stay away from all dartfish in a tank that size.
