I would not use a UGF on a saltwater tank but thats my opinion. Is your current tank in the salon? Are you taking like a hair salon? I would be concerned that the fumes of the hair products would hurt water quality.

If you cant go with a skimmer then frequent water changes will be in order to help maintain water quality.

If a UGF is your only option then just make sure it does not stop up or clog, do frequesnt water changes (15-20%) weekly because you have no skimmer and it is such a small tank (close to 10 gal i think). The lighting should work fine on a small tank. I hope this helps.

thanx

thanx for all of you
but have some Qs
i guess it's hard to do a water change every week (very costly tooo)
so is there any other way
is there any way to hand make a small skimmer (please instruction)
and for lighting what colour is good
as i have in the large tank a blue and they show very good colors
what about other lightining (as in my big tang the white color lighting is not good for show colors)
thanx
i started the tank as follow
1- i but the UGF (not started yet)
2- but the substrate
3- add have the tank of the big tank water the other half is fresh water and added salt to it
4- add two rocks from the big tank
5- i but a power filter to move water and push some air in the water

how long should i wait to add the two clowns and animoon?
thanx
ah yeah
saloon is a room for guests
