What all do I REALLY need? Websites say I NEED a heater algae scrubber damsels and all that junk. Coming from someone who obviously has expirience what do I need for a simple ten gallon with two clowns? I already have a Hood and whisper ex 20

This is everything you'll need
Tank
Sand
Rock
Heater
Filter
Hydrometer
Powerhead
Salt
RODI water- tap water can cause huge algae outbreaks in saltwater.


Clowns are super easy to keep. You don't need an algae scrubber or damsels. You just drop in a dead shrimp and the fishless cycle starts. If you use all live rock (maybe 15 lbs) the cycle will go super fast. I used mostly dry rock with a little live rock because its cheaper.

Do I really need a heater? I don't use one for any of my freshy tanks? And it will be a small tank so won't the Florida heat coming into my room be hot enough? All my tanks are at 79.

If the tank will stay at a stable temp without the heater, then you should be fine. Just as long as it doesn't fluctuate

Nah, live sand is kind of a gimmick IMO. I bought regular old dry sand.

Yup you'll need one. Clowns love lots of flow.

Well, it's hard to say. I'd estimate anywhere from $200-300. Not sure though. Shop around online and see for sure. It depends where you buy
