Almost a week now. I added another piece of live rock on Sunday. I'm amazed at how clear the water has been. I still haven't been able to check my parameters because the testing kit is on order.
I hear about people having their water checked at their LFS
. How much water has to be taken to them to test it?
I have seen tons of life in the tank! Dozens of tiny snails climbing on the glass, dozens of small starfish and an unknown number of brittle starfish ( since I can only see their arms coming from the rocks!)
I have seen three different colors of brittle starfish though ( blackish green, white and red with white stripes). I am looking to make this 5 gal
into a reef... Will these types of hitchhikers play a role with my corals later on?
Also, I know that clown fish are supposed to be in 20 gallon tanks but my LFS
have literally the smallest clowns I've ever seen. Like 1/2 in to 3/4 in. Could one of them survive in my 5 gal
