proper salinity

I was told 1.026 but I read on several sites that clownfish should be kept at 1.024

I keep mine at 1.026. 1.024-1.026 is fine. The key is stability. Swings in salinity can harm inverts like shrimp etc. they are very very sensitive.

Ok I just figured I would make sure. I am planning on clownfish and maybe some other compatible fish

Actually it can vary from 1.020-1.030 but the majority is found around 1.026 I believe.

Ok just wondering. On a different note is there a website that shows different corals and what type of lighting they need?

I've check them out. I was hoping for a list of some sorts. I seen I've once but didn't save it now I can't find it. The guy at aquatic critter told me I can keep anemones and spouted off a bunch of names of coral but I couldn't remember any
