Hello! I am new to the fish world & have just bought a 55 gal
tank from craigslist. A friend gave me a stand that I'm not to impressed with & am looking to build a new one with a canopy. Any suggestions?
I am planning on setting the tank up as SW
. I need all the advice & information I can get. I havent bought any filters, heaters, sand or anything. I just have the tank & a light that came with it.
I have done some research. So far I know that I am interested in any combination of the following fish: Red Mandarin, Kaudern's Cardinal, Blue Spotted Puffer, Clownfish, Auriga Butterfly, Damsels & Foxface. I also like bumble bee snails, spiny star astraea & red chocolate chip star fish. I need some input as to what has worked with you all. The lady at my local fish store said that they could all live together, but I would def need a bigger tank. So PLEASE any suggestions?
What equipment...live sand...water conditioners...test kits & decorations have worked for you with a combination of any of those fish!
Thank you all in advance!
