For being beginner and for your size tank, I would recommend a set up similar to this. Look through the thread for some ideas
Tom's 55G Saltwater
Maybe start off FOWLR
and add corals when you feel more comfortable and your tank is stable. There are some pretty easy corals to keep.
Well I like your advice of exercising caution with the puffers and lion fish. So it's got me
Thinking about maybe doing a
Community setup. Then segueing into a reef.
But here are some ideas for some fish.
Clownfish 1 or 2.
Fire fish 2
And perhaps a dotty back. I don't really know of the types of inverts or other fish I could add. But that seems pretty full for a 50 gallon to me. What do you guys think?
