Off and running...most likely in the wrong direction!!

Greetings and happy fish to all...
Name here is Bob

I would like to have and maintain a FOWLER tank

Sooo I purchased a tiny tank called a PICOTOPE (3 gals) actually 2 after adding live sand and rock are added... Thought I would start small...Yeah! not 2 swift I have come to find out.
After some basic research here at AA it appears my tank (which is now up and running) is way too small for happy SW fish to be in !

I am a bit slow but sure happy to be here...a place where I can get good info before stepping into a tiny tank !

You can do a nice little tank the problem will be finding fish to put in something that small. You can always do a few different things like crabs or shrimp. Pom pom crabs are small and so are sexy shrimp. I don't know what kind of light you have but you might be able to get a few mushrooms or zoas for color too,

Welcome! The post above definitely has some great suggestions!
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
