Okay, so I already have a FW
community tank. Currently 10 gallons and will be upping to 60-70 gallons next month. The thing is, I have a real soft spot for Percula Clownfish. I'd like to pick up a 30 gallon, place it in my bedroom, and drop a couple clownfish in there.
Still relatively new with FW
tanks, I don't want to rush things and end up killing the precious little guys, so I have all the patience in the world to perform a fishless cycle. Afterall, I still have my FW
guys to tend to anyway.
setups seem a little intimidating, I mean, not only do I have to worry about everything the FW
fishies worry about, NH, NO2
, pH, hardness, but now salinity and gravity?! I bet there's more!
So how should I go about setting up the fishless cycle?
1. The DIYs I've read don't really go into detail as to when to add coral or anemones and their water quality needs. Do I add these at the same time of decor/liverock/etc?
2. Couldn't really find detailed profiles on Clownfish either, how many could comfortably live in a 30 gallon
. I'd like to have at least two.
3. Can they peacefully share the same anemone? How many per anemone?
4. Post pictures of your set ups! I'd love to see your perky clowns!
