Its pretty hard for me to understand what you just wrote... But ill try my best to grasp it. Im saying that certain fish dont belong in certain sized tanks and that is NOT an opinion, it is a FACT.

What i say is that clowns can be house on a 10 gal! And that is a fact as you wrote!! Because i have seen it! And yes i have to give you something not everything the lfs people say its true!! All i say is that is up to the fish tank owner to decide what he wants on it!!

Haha you know what, i thought i would just end this dispute and show you facts. Not opinions like you are making. This is liveaquaria, and they say that the smallest clown fish (ocellaris clown) needs at least a 20 gallon! Mind you, this is the SMALLEST clownfish. Point proven.

Okay, aside from everyone arguing I just wanted to tell everyone I just purchased a 16G bow front! It was a steal on Craigslist and it comes with everything except for a stand.

What's the first thing I should do after cleaning the tank?? Go out and get some ro/di??

Could I survive in a closet? Yes. Is it ideal to live in a closet? No.

Are you talking about 2 goldfish being in a 10 gallon or 2 CLOWNS?! I myself started the saltwater hobby with 2 clowns in a 10 gallon. Although, they were FRY. All I got was Cyanobacteria on the Sand bed and stressed fish. A month later I upgraded to a 55 gallon and the clowns are healthy as ever. If your planning on getting 2 clowns, the best you could do is get at least a 20 gallon.

I appreciate everyone's concerns on 2 clown fish BUT I'm not even near the point of buying fish. I just bought the tank today and id like to know what my first few steps should be..

If everyone wants to continue arguing I'm just gonna start a new thread.
