What will i be able to keep in this smaller one? That wouldnt be able to live in my 55. And will this sand substrate work i a sw aquarium.. My mom got it, she was gonna start a freshwater tank but changed her mind. She had bought this 20 pound bag of fw/sw sand. Says its ok for both but im making sure.

Just talked to my mom about it, im still lost. She said why you wanna start another salt water when u have a big one down there.. Only thing i could think of is.. Maybe i can add a different type of fish that wouldnt mix well with the ones in the 55 gal. But all of them need a bigger tank.. Like the lionfish!

She said i think u should start a molly tank... I walked away.

Good for you! :P Even if you did start a freshwater tank, 17g isn't big enough for mollies.

I think so. =] And if you're not planning to add any more livestock, it can also work as a hospital tank.

Do i need sand? And do i need to seperate my cleaner and peppermint, i think my cleaner struck my peppermint this morning when i looked thru the side of the tank. They have been super close on one side of my 55, big tank and they are in the same spot...

Im gonna make it a qt tank.. Imma need it anyway. Decided to order a few fish from liveaquaria and watch them in it before i move em in my 55. Whenever its set up. Should i move half of my water from my 55 into my qt tank? To quicken the cycle. Liveaquaria has so many fish that my lfs doesnt.

I would go with QT. So long as you buy fish small enough to have swimming room in there better safe than sorry. If you get flatworms or something in on a fish you'll regret not having QTed it.
