Hi. My name is Anthony. I am considering getting a saltwater aquarium for my school apartment. I was wondering if it a 12 gallon would suffice. My roommate and I just got a 55 gallon tank for a turtle and it takes up so much space. I am curious what fishes would be suitable for a 12 gallon tank.

Welcome to Aquarium Advice.

With a 12g, you are limited to one, maybe two small fish. Small fish like clowns, gobies, firefish, some hawkfish and inverts.
liveaquaria.com offers a list of nano fish on their site. You could check it for some ideas.

You can find a good book and lots of info here to help you along and definately take advantage of it. In SW tanks it is easier to maintain a tank the larger it is. For beginners it is recommended to have 30 gal or larger. It is very possible to be successful with a 12 gal as a first tank though. Just a little more work.
