need advice setting up a 36gal corner bow front aq. 4 clowns

I just bought a 36 gal All-Glass Genevia series tank. I would like to put some live rock and a few clown fish. Any advice would be great. I need help with filtration, lights and so on.

Id be careful how many you put in there. I have a 125 and my two clowns fight all the time. Let others chime in before you decide.

First off, Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!
I agree. Two clowns max, but only if they are a mated pair. Otherwise it is trouble. They are very agressive towards other clowns.

That is a lot to cover in one post. I do suggest you get a good book on SW tanks. I like "The Consceintious Marine Aquarist" by Robert Fenner. There are also articles on getting started in the "Articles" section at the top of the page.

nothing will gobble up the live rock so to speak, being a small tank and u want a couple of fish i'd suggest a species of dottyback..plenty out there to suit your colour likes, a firefish would go great and perhaps a flame angel or coral beauty..
