The correct amount of Live Rock is the key. No special lighting is required for a Fish Only Tank.
Just for a heads up, if your LFS guy was hesitant about telling you it was not ok about using FW bio media in a SW tank, I'd say he doesn't know what he's talking about, and just guessing. Thats not a good thing.
ive been looking up on it a while.its not something i wanna rush into.ive made mistakes and dont want to go through them again.it being SW, i want to learn more before starting to be more prepared :) and yes u are rite...when he was hesitant..i kinda knew it wouldnt work..then he suggested about the bottles of BB...im not sure i wana use that.of course ill have 2 clowns in there so it wont be so bad :)
