depends on the type of clown actually.they are hardy and easy for beginners cause they take pellets after a few days.it's normal for them to not eat in the first 3-4 days in a new tank.after that just put the sinking pellets in and they are more then happy to feed on them.plus most of the time they just stick a anemone in there and the tank look complete.

just imagine lr scape, anemone, pistol shrimp and 2 clowns and you have a perfect pic nano reef ^.^

10g tanks are not a very good idea for Clowns and any Anemone that I know of. The only Nem that would fit in a tank that small would be a Max Mini. WIth Live Rock and a Substrate, the water displacement, you rtank is not going to be even close to 10g, more like 4-5g.

well i've seen at least 1 person do it but i'm guessing they were pros and wanted to test their skill.from what i remember there were no lr in the main tank the anemone was set low could have been stuck to a base lr but i couldn't see it.the lr used for filtration could have been in the sump area.

Right on. Sump with all the LR coulda done te trick. But still, Anemones get really Big in diameter.

What is a sump? I've heard people talk about it but cant figure it out. Same with an overflow. I get the point that it i for extra water, but why wold there be that much?

Are Gobies good for beginners? The Catalina Goby is freaking AMAZING!!

a sump is an aquarium used as a filter.just imagine your whisper filter but with 2 feet worth of space to put in filter material.
an overflow is a compartment in the tank where the water from the tank over flows into and is sent to the sump underneath the main tank.

if you can get a tank with a sump.i 100% guarantee you will love yourself for getting it in the first place.as you can stock up a little more in the main tank without stressing the system as the sump is of ample space for filtration.if you make the sump a refregium even better.a refregium is a sump that has live algae (the good type)or cheeto that helps with biological filtration it is once of the best filtration for a sw tank.

in short a 10g tank with a 10g sump will make it a 20g and that will give you 10g++ for ls in the main tank.the temp is easier to control as well as it gets to cool down before being pumped into the tank.no wires here and there,no fans on top of the tank either.
instead of a 10g tank alone which will give you only 4 gallons tops just like reefing madness said because of all the lr and equipment that displaces a lot of water in the tank
