Ok, after seeing carey's yellow watchman goby, I've decided to give saltwater a shot
I have a spare ten gallon in my basement that I'm planning on using, and after numerous PM's with Carey, I think I'm finally ready to start a build thread.
I'm researching as I go along, so bare with me! I'm not using a skimmer on this tank. Just for review... This is what I need (technology wise) to get started right?
Filter (just going HOB
Test kit (API for now)
For stocking, well, this was my idea:
1 clown of some sort (suggestions please!)
1 yellow watchman goby
1 cleaner shrimp maybe?
Does that sound ok?
Now for my questions:
Do clowns have to have anemones?
What brand of salt do you guys like best?
How much rock should I use?
Is there anything I'm missing?
I'm going with a 2 inch sand bed. For now this is just going to be FOWLR
, but I'll most likely upgrade my lights and go reef at some point. Thanks for any help you can give, and I appreciate any advice! Looking forward to getting started!
