Oh wow! I guess I have yet a lot to learn about this! I thought I pretty much had it all figured out. But as of right now I have two tomato clown fish, and havent really decided what I wanna do with my fish at this point. I was for sure thinking about buying some more LR for my tank..Ive only got about 8lbs in there as of now. So tomorrow I am off work, and school and I think im going to go and buy some more LR for my tank, and then pick up a Powerhead for the tank as well. Something that I am sure that I am going to need at some point down the road. As for lighting..Nothing excellent by any means. Just a plain jane light. But it is working for right now, until I get something that I really need it for. I was thinking about buying a compact light and using that. I hear it can really make stuff grow in a tank? Any truth to that...Any more information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance!

for lighting for your tank I would go with the 20" 1x96W Coralife Aqualight CF hood w/ Quad 50/50 -Square Pin. It's one of the best for a tank your size. I'm planning on getting it here in a couple of weeks.
You will need a Powerhead right now, the clowns will play in the stream, plus it'll keep the water from becoming stagnent.
As for the LR, if it's uncured I would move your clowns out of there, cuz you will go through a cycle again. If you can find it cured that would be best, then you wont cycle.
I don't think anyone has this hobby totally figured out. It changes all the time, but that part of the enjoyment. : )
don't do this hobby half assed, cuz it's only going to discourage you. Read, Read, Read, and take what the LFS says with a grain of salt. They are only trying to sell a product. I've gotten very bad advice from some of them, so I trust my judgement, knowledge, and suggestions from peers. I would seriously join nano-reef.com, it's been invaluable to me since it's all about small reef systems.
