ok- Final plans here- please check

Okay, after much revision here are my final plans for my new SW aquarium. Please evaluate for me, Dont want to fail!

Ten Gal Nano Tank Plans

Okay, I will relocate the goldfish I currently have in the tank and totally scrub down everything, (without soap). and leave the decor out, and throw the gravel away. Then I will trip to the LFS and buy a few pounds of LS and 10-15 lbs of LR. Then, I will Place this in the aquarium. Next I will mix the synthetic sea salt and put it in the tank, and power everything up. Then, I will go to the grocery store and get raw shrimp and put it in the tank (to produce ammonia) and let it cycle for a week or so, until everything is balanced. Then, when the water is finally ready, I will go to Petco (I know.. I know.. Fishy hell) and rescue a pair of baby clownfish from the tanks of doom. I'll take em home and place them in a 2 gal tank (too small for acclimation!?) then siphon the water and adjust to a few drops per second, Ill sit there for 30 min making sure everything is ok, then I'll net the fish and put them in the new tank. Sound alright? I know I know, no quarantine, I dont have the materials or money for it.. oh well. Tell me what ya think

EEEK this can be expensive. Is it possible at all to convert with a 100$ budget?

Assuming you dont upgrade your lights then yes i thinik you can get very close to your $100 intial budget. Its gonna be tight cause your rock itself is gonna be close to $30-50 probably. Perc clowns up here are like $15.99/each for tank rased.

Dont forget about the ongoing expense of water changes (need more salt), etc.
