I'm thinking 2 Clown Fish aka Nemo's they are $25 a piece at warehouse aquarium... then after they get adjusted 2 Sea Horses??? Are those numbers ok? I haven't done my research on what they require yet, bc I know some fish need a certain number in a group otherwise **** hits the fan lol
I appreciate the help ya'll btw! SW is new to me but I've been doing FW for 2yrs now.
I plan to buy a marine test kit Friday.... I believe its like $30 at PetSmart

Not to sure about the seahorses. I think they are on the expert level myself and I belive they have to be in a species specific tank. Other then that clowns sound good to start with. I would do lotsa research before you add even a snail. I know it sounds stupid but the more I knew when I started the better off I was. I also learned a heck of alot on this forum by reading everyone's posts. I read an idiots guide to saltwater before I dived in, but this forum teaches me something new every day.

It's a hammer coral. I got it for a steal at 40 bucks! There is a anemone in behind the back. It's a condy nem. I have a pulsing Xenia, bottom right, mushrooms and zoas. All pretty easy to keep stuff. Gotta have good light tho my tank came with halide lights. Good for coral but bad for heating issues!
