I just started and I have a 29 gallon tank. I was wondering what fish and corals would be great for a beginner. I am getting a pair of clownfish and an anemone. So if you have any ideas please let me know!

Clowns should be last fish added and tank needs to mature before a nem can be added. But that size your looking at 4 fish total. For coral leathers, mushrooms, and polyps are easiest

Thanks, if not clownfish what should I start off with. I was think of maybe getting a firefish or Midas blenny.

Well I hope so because those to are probably my favourite fish. I also like the flame angel but I know I can't have them in my tank!

Clown gobies and blennys will get along just fine.

You will need a mature tank for the nem as mentioned and you will need strong lighting...something to conisder...and also, not all clowns will host a nem, it's hit or miss with them. So don't get the pair if you are really really wanting to see that cause it may not happen.

As far as coral, it will depend on your lighting. What are you going with or do you have already?

I was told 4 is good for a 30 gal but if your skimmer, and stuff is handeling that fine you may squeeze another In, just don't add all at once it lets the tank adjust to each fish' bioload

Probably a Scarlett skunk shrimp, a couple turbos I want a sand sifting star but I think it needs to mature before putting in

Is a Scarlett skunk shrimp like a cleaner shrimp? I haven't really did any research on them.

Shrimp aren't part of cuc's, they need to be fed. And a 30 is probably a little to small for a sand sifting star, it will be tough to keep it fed as it will quickly strip your sandbed of micro fauna
