sweet! and MarcoRocks Aquarium Products is where i found the $150 deal for the 50 dry 5 live! But would a 35 gal hexagon(tall) tank be good? I am reading the setting up a fowlr tank now. When it says fish only? what does that mean? like no snails? or plants besides rocks?

Just means no corals. You can have plants, crabs, snails and such.

Water quality needs to be better, you have to watch what kind of crabs and fish you have in the tank. Might need more rock, as 2lbs per galloin is advised for a Reef tank. Yoiur Nitrates can be much higher in a fiSh only tank. Tap water would not be a good idea here, as the TDS, phosphates and other crap in the water would make it difficult to keep corals. And that one lamp you have would not support corals either.

Haha well that sure explains it! Thanks!

I gotta tell my buddy to get on here. His tank is set up all wrong! He has a porqupine puffer fish, and some other thing, and had 2 clown fish(puffer ate them)

but he has a 55 gal with like 6 live rocks in it. And just a filter that hangs off the back. A heater. And a bubbler.

YIKES!

Clown fish yes, Dwarf Lion Fish, yes, Dragonette, well this one if difficult. Fully mature tanks can support these guys because they eat PODS. But, you can buy and feed the tank with PODS. Red Shrimp, Fire Shrimp, yes.
