Could I do?
Could I do a 20 gallon clownfish tank. I really like clownfish and may be buying a 2nd 20 gallon tank to create a clownfish tank. Is it possible?
yes it is possible.
Live rock 1-1.5lbs per gallon to act as your main filtration. Dry rock is also cheaper and will become live overtime.
Live sand, a few crabs and snails as Clean Up Crew.
It does get quite expensive to setup a saltwater tank so take this into account.
Reefing Madness is the person who will help you the most..he has helped me an awful lot (see my thread on Beginner Questions / Checking)...I have a 29g tank with 2 clowns in it.
yea I am going for a couple of jobs at the moment to raise some "funds".
200gph power head
no need for a skimmer doing 10% water changes weekly, you will just have to keep an eye on nitrates.
20-30lbs Live Rock
2-3" Sand Bed
small T-5 light
And your all set.
thanks and are you sure the no skimmer that would cut plenty of the cost out of it in australia
okay sweet that saves me a heap of money
What will cost me the most in a clownfish tank? besides the tank itself?
