Recomended fish

I have a 10 gallon tank that I want to put 2 ocellaris clown fish in, what else do you guys think I could put in there I would like to have a dwarf sea pony too and a type of shrimp but I've read they are pretty hard to manage.

10g is too small for even one clown I am afraid. Is or your first saltwater? Sea horses are species only tanks, just so you know. Most shrimp are good tho, and check out live aquaria in the nano fish sections for suitable fish for you tank. tons of awesome gobies...

completley agree unfrotunatley it is too small for one clown. you would be ok for a dwarf sea horse on size i believe but you need a lot of specialist care to look after them and multiple feedings. also clowns dont mix well with sea horses as clowns eat everything they see and sea horses like to eye there food up and eat it in their own time. i would consider a clown goby and some inverts for something like that but not a lot else in a 10 gallon

I think that's a great idea, easier to maintain stable water parameters, can fit the fish you want!

Much better choice for 2 clowns, and you could still get a couple other nano fish too. I love my yellow headed jawfish- she's so cute. You could get one in that size tank. Doesn't really swim around much, but she's always looking out of her burrow opening. And she stares right back at me when I look in the tank, kinda brave for her size. Lol A chalk bass would be good for that size too. A Firefish would work. My Firefish and jawfish live together in the same burrow. It's cute; when moonlight comes on, Firefish darts into the burrow and the jawfish covers the burrow opening with old snail shells. then they're tucked in for the night. as suggested, look on liveaquaria.com in the SW nano section. There's lots of choices listed for a 27g tank.
