No problem, hermits dont do a whole lot anyways haha so if you wanna make the water salty you will first need to buy pure ro water from your lfs. Then you mix it with some salt using a powerhead and you keep it warm with a thermometer. I mix my water with reef crystals (my salt)

I would try and find a nice reef store by you, then you dont get killed by shipping! I would buy a cheap coral ar first and see how he does, then buy alot of frags online if you still decide to go that way!

Look for a reef club near you and join if you can. Great way to meet other reefers to get more advice and frags.

Well I would buy them from a store if there were any reef stores. Really my only option is ordering online. Ill just try that and see how it goes.

Hi just wondering about the clown. Would a black occelaris clown work? I saw one at PetCo that's really gorgeous. Thats what you meant be occ clown, right? Hope I got the name wrong it not its the black and white clown with white stripes.

Also, one more question, would live sand be like sand from the beach or something? My LFS sells aquarium sand but idk if it's live sand. How can I get some?

Haha live sand is pointless IMO. Just put in regular sand and you will be fine. If you want some cheap sand go to a pool store or home depot and get pool filter sand. 50 pounds for like 10 bucks you will need to wash it though.

Sure you can get a black clown! I personally think the regular clown looks better and more traditional... But i might get a black clown to pair with my orange one in my 66 gal
