the tanks the same for fresh or salt, light doesn't matter if it is just for fish and you can use a hang on back filter rated for whatever size tank your get I think I would oversize the filter just a bit though. A 20 gal. is the smallest I would go if you have the room and the money I would go a little bigger if you could maybe a 29 or 30. Hope everything is good with your son good luck.

For that type if setup you might want to consider a biocube. I have never had one but read about others. They seem quite customizable and able to support nems with the right upgrade.

Check the nano reef section.

I've got a 28g jbj nano cube it is fantastic. Everthing is all in one. You will be able to do two clowns just make sure one is smaller then the other and the larger of the two will become a female. You say your son comes home in 6 weeks? If possible grab the tank now put in sand, live rock and saltwater then place a table shrimp in so the tank will cycle before he comes home. When he is home he will be able to go and select the clowns with you. If you have any questions fell free to ask lotsa people here have great advice. Good luck.

In my tank I have two oc clowns, a royal gamma, yellow watchman goby, pistol shrimp, three snails, three hermits. The last fish I add will be a cherub angel I just have to find one. Ya don't want to have to much more then that. Also when you add livestock you start with clean up crew after the cycle then a few weeks later you two clowns. A few weeks later another fish and so on. You can't add them all at once you have to allow the beneficial bacteria to catch up In between additions. I also do partial water changes once a week of 3 gallons. Helps to replenish nutrients in the water and export excess waste you don't want. I feed once every other day and not a lot at that. There is lots of food in the tank for them to eat.
