Alright, I think I may be starting my first tank here shortly. Iíve got to get my wife on board first!
I have an Innovative Marine 16 gallon tank that was once an established tank. I bought it off craigslist. At this point I am thinking FOWLR
but I am definitely interested in doing some coral in the future so please donít hold back on warnings if any of my ideal stock list wonít work.
First off though, what all do I need to get my tank cycling? I am thinking 20-25 lbs live rock, dry sand for the bed (maybe an inch thick?) and what else am I missing?
As for stock, I would like at least one clown fish (maybe two), a yellow watchman goby, a tiger piston shrimp, an emerald crab or two and some snails (recommendations?) and maybe a bit later a starfish but what kind will work? I will obviously only add one fish at a time. What timeline would/should I work with for adding the next and the next?
I think thatís enough questions for now.
