I don't know. There is a formula out there somewhere. I can generally eyeball it when looking at the bags. Measure what you have and go from there.

That's what i'm talking about! There is nothing like the fresh smell of a new saltwater tank, just after the salt is mixed.

What would my options be if I didn't get clownfish( like what fish)? Every one and there dog has a clownfish.

Any way I went to a place today and they had 3 fish tanks from what I could tell there were 2 180's and 1 50 gallon cube.

In the first tank (? 180)there was a reef set up contaning 1 unicorn , 2 yellow, and 1 regal tang, 2 heniochus black & white butterflyfish, 1 six line wrasse, and a sand sifting goby.

In the second tank (? 180)it was fish only w/ a snail, contaning 1 porcupine puffer, 1 blonde Naso tang, 1 pink tail trigger, and a lion fish ( type unknown), and this snail which was 3in in diameter.

in the third tank( 50 cube) it was a species tank with just clown fish. 9 clowns is what I could count.

I will not be putting fire shrimp in this tank as of my thoughts now. Any thoughts on what fish could replace the clowns?

I think I will put a longspine urchin in and take some snails out, and replace the fire fish with an orange line cardinal.
