OMG the fish store lied to me, forked over $40 for the saltwater test kit!

I'm thinking a pair of clowns to start then possibly a six line and a dwarf lion? Would they work together? I'm assuming I could only get 3-4 fish in my tank.

Also do I have to have a cuc?

Your tank is too small imo for a dwarf lion and unless you get larger clown they may become lunch for the lion.

Fu Manchu lions can go in a 30g. Dwarf lions I would say 50g. They can get up to ~8". I would do a pair of clowns and a sixline and be done.

I would say no. Some people will say ribbon eels but I wouldn't put them in a 30g. Garden eels would work but you need a 1' deep sand bed.

What about one? Decide what you want, ask questions and do research, not all CuC members you may want are compatible.
