But you do understand about the goby right? Its cruel to keep a fish in such a small tank when its way to active and could live a better life in a bigger tank or at the lfs.

Yea I do. I just want to do something simple with saltwater. Start off small, and if I like it I will get a bigger tank!

As for a ten gallon, would could one put in there compared to a five gallon?

Well first off, the smaller the tank the harder to maintain and this is coming from experience with a pico. I have add 1/4g of RODI daily and my 3g stays at 76° F.

The next thing is wc, adding Water with a even 2-3° difference with really effect the temp of the whole tank, and next salinity, you have to make sure to keep you salinity right because again in a small tank it doesnt take much to change.

In a 10g heres a list of fish you could do that are easy to keep-
Clown goby
Court jester goby
Zebra barred dart fish
Red fire fish
Purple fire dish
Yasha goby
Tail spot blenny
And many more, those are just off the top of my head but just wanna put in there, CLOWNFISH SHOULD NOT BE PUT IN ANYTHING BELOW 20Gs! (made it bold so it will catch your attention lol ).

Also a hectors goby would be fine in a 10g.

Once I do get a house, I do want a 55 gallon saltwater aquarium. 55 gallon would be a lot easier to keep all levels decent. The saltwater store near me has a 520 gallon saltwater and it is so pretty!
