Beengirl's 30g FOWLR starts!!

Decided that our 8 1/2" fantail goldfish and his 5" friend were too big for the 30g, so he has been re-homed to a friend's pond with a lot of other goldfish. Sad to see him go, but he'll be happier.
So, now I'm changing that FW tank to SW!!
Scrubbed it out good today, spray painted the back black. Went to store and bought sand, filter, heater, thermometer, and some base rock. Will use some LR I have to seed the base rock. Then I will start cycling . . . Again. Gonna wait and see how water params are before deciding if I wanna add skimmer later.

Ok. So paint is dry, water, rock and sand are in. Water is cloudy, of course. Heater's on. And added some ammonia.

My daughter and I have been trying to decide what fish to put in. She wants one clown (of course). Any suggestions?

If you want the clown to run the show. What about a gold strip maroon clown?

Are they very aggressive? I don't want him beating up everyone else. Was hoping to have a "peaceful" tank. The maroon are pretty.

Yes, they are the most aggressive clown. They will attack just about anything if threatened in the wild even divers.

What about black&white or mocha clowns then?

Where did u get your mochas? I've been to all of the SW stores around here many many times, and I've never seen a mocha.

My LFS had them in stock, QT'd and ready to go... They were my first fish purchase, other than a goby that I acquired with my love rock...

Love em, partially because they're not the typical looking clowns. I wanted the black and white domino clowns but they were expensive!
