I'm a freshie wishing to start a small manageable SW
tank. I am also going to shoot for as cheap as possible, nothing fancy that I don't need. What sparked my interest was this SW
tank I saw today at a LFS
(Aquarium Concepts in Dublin, CA
) that was about 15-20 gallons, had a HOB
filter, a clown fish and some LR
. The tank was longer than tall made of acrylic with rounded edges. I believe it also had a damsel in it. (I am very limited in my SW
fish profiles). This tank also had a rotating powerhead and some anenome It was quite tall and transclucent pink. I am not very knowledgable yet but I feel that I would be over my head cost-wise doing the whole coral thing, but I'm not even sure that the anenome is a coral?
What I would like to do is keep a tank in my bedroom that had maybe 1 or 2 small fish (thinking black clown or damselfish), some LR
and an anenome. I would craigslist or get a free tank and utilized used parts.
Can anyone estimate the cost of starting this project?
