The tomato clown will fight with him until one dies. I would keep one in the 30 and one in the 90. If you keep the 30 and 90 running at the same time.

Actually these two clowns have been together for over a year and get along great. They never fight and mater (as I call her) does not chase her. They stay together most of the time.

I have been looking at lighting and will be buying a fixture soon. I am on a budget, so I have been looking at the units on aquatraders.com. What do you guys think of the Odyssea units that have the 2-250watt MH, 4 T5's and the bluemoon LED bulbs. I do know they come with a cheeper bulb, but I could replace those with newer/better ones once I had time to save up some more money. I would love to go all LED, but just don't have enough money for that.

i would go with something that uses less electricity but puts out comparable PAR, like a t5 HO fixture. you can get one that's UL listed for the same money. moonlights are worthless IMO. they do nothing and you can't even see in the tank. if you have a 48" tank like a 75 or 90 you could use a 8 x 54 watt t5 ho that you can grow anything you want under and with the proper bulbs, your tank will look like a cartoon.

My husband is really wanting a clam, like really bad. Would a T5 set up like that be enough for a clam? And the hard corals?
