New tank

I am thinking if setting up a small 15 gallon saltwater tank. What are my options on stocking?

Check out live aquaria, nano fish - it will show recommended tank size. I would say one fish only from the list and a couple of inverts

Maybe some corals and two clownfish.

CUC: Shrimps, hermits, snails...

This is my first reef tank, and my first fishs are ocellaris clownfish. They're beautifull, and have great behaviours IMO.

They're hardy fishs, good for beginner, and will survive in a bit ammonia. I bought them minis, they already grown in 2 months. If I had to start it again, I would choose thoses fishs again.



Make sure you choose a mated pair and not two females, or they'll fight. If you get a male and female they'll love instead fight.

Ocellaris clowns is kinda pushing it. Any other clowns wont have the room needed. Check into gobies & dartfish. Look for the 'nano-fish' categories. I love my 2 Ocellaris' as well. Had them longer than any.

They're so perfect, they look plastic made, like a beautifull toy !

The whites stripes become blue fluorescent when they're under actinic only light before the night time.

In my 20g, they stay in the same spot, they never go the the other half of the tank... Maybe they'll do same in a 15g ?

But they won't fit any other fishs in a 15g, except bottom fishs.
