If this is your first saltwater aquarium, dont do it, it wont work. I started with a 10g and it failed miserably, and i know many stories of the same thing. If you want a clownfish tank, start with a 30 gallon with a 10gallon sump, and then work from there. IF you still want to go with 13g, it will cost about $500-$700 if u want corals, and $300 for just fish. This is because u most likely dont have the correct filtration if u are coming from a freshwater aquarium. Saltwater is infinitely more money than freshwater, sadly.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

$300 for a clown fish! You can get two nice Ocellaris Clown fish for around $30.

Please do tell us what filtration you currently have, as mentioned above freshwater and saltwater are completely different.

I see , in that case that sounds about right. Filtration will be key here, so I'll like to here what the current filter is. Doesnt sound too adequate if its mounted "in hood".....sounds like freshwater.
