In a 16 gallon, I would put wound 15-20 lbs. I have 150 lbs in my 150 and a 4" sandbed. And I'm using sugar sized sand.

Okay cool, any specific kind you'd recommend for a clown and goby... I heard gobys like crushed coral bottoms?

No crushed coral sucks IMO, get some fine sand. I have 80 lb of argonite sand in my 66 and i have a 4" sand bed.

+1 I was considering doing crushed coral, but was convinced to do Fiji pink... Looks 1,000 times better than crushed, plus I think is just more beneficial to a salt water set up.

I would recommend sugar sized sand. It's called oolite sand. Works great. Very fine and looks awesome.
