Yes like hank said you can really only have 1-2 small fish in that size tank. IMO the inverts are the star of the show in small tanks like a 10. Look into some interesting shrimp, urchins, crabs etc

As already said, for a FOWLR, you're basically just running a FW tank that you add salt to.

My biggest costs were the Lights and Powerhead.

Both of which don't need to be fancy on a FOWLR.

Well as long as I can convince my parents, I plan on making this happen. Any articles you recommend reading up on first?

I pretty much read the entirety of MrSaltwaterTank.com when I got started.

I know Mark also has a range of books for pretty much anything you'd need to know.
