(fake decor) You'll be sorry you put them in there. Better to do LR even if it is just dry base rock. Also use the correct sand PH buffering arg. 10G is not the best starter tank, but I'm sure others warn you of that already. best of luck & remember patience is the key to SW tanks.

Ok I was thinking about it and by the time I have enough money for a SW tank I will be able to buy live rock so I'll probably end up having live rock in there

You would attach it to the side most likely adn aim it at the front glass so it bounces around the tank.

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

Can I ask what is the purpose of having much more circulation in a SW tank??

Flow is a key factor in keeping things moving since the LR is the filter that most people use in SW.

Ok so if I had live rock and the power head I don't need a filter? Oh and would a sponge filter be ok for a SW tank?
