That sounds cool, but maybe there might be agression in a ten with the lack of space?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So i was wondering a couple things like, do i need to put the rocks into the tank first, then put the sand in? And do i have to glue all these rocks together, even though i will only have a few?

I put my rocks in first and then the sand so that the rocks are completely stable. I have yet to glue any rocks together, just play with them and see how you can make them fit so they are sturdy.

Cool! And about lights, id like an LED lamp that could sustain corals in my 10. Any ideas? Also, does it make the whole tank look blue? :/

I hope to start a saltwater tank one day. I know they are more expensive. But from what I hear, not that hard to take care of?

The light color depends on the lights that you get

I had two actually, one was a 20k bulb and one was a 12k I believe. I just sold them to a guy on craigslist. lol But they were great lights and were about $80 each
