Although it will be a few years before I create a saltwater aquarium, I wouldn't mind planning some things out now.
But exactly how do I do that?
I have been looking at this website for quite some time. (liveaquaria.com) And really the only conclusion I have is that I want some clownfish! I want to try and create an easy tank, colorful if possible, that is around 55 gallons (as I've read 55 is good for beginners; the bigger, the more manageable the water is) to maybe 75.
Easy fish are what I am looking for, obviously, but I realize they must have certain things in common, right? They must be somewhat compatible? I know next to nothing, but I'm assuming they must all need similar water conditions?
So if I'm starting with clown fish...where would I branch off from there? Why type of plants/rocks/etc. should I be looking for? Any other thoughts?
