hi all

hi i'm new to the fish scene and need some advice as every shop i go to tells me something different!
I have just bought a 30 litre biorb and want to have a marine (saltfish) aquarium.
What is the maximum number of medium sized fish i can put in there?
My son wants a clown fish and i want a regal tang.
I was hoping to put 3 fih in there but obviously want to make sure this is safe for them.
one shop told me i could put 4 fish in then another told me 2.
I'm so confused!!
I plan to put living rock in there too.
PLEASE HELP ME!

he'll probably eat the coral. that tank is too small and not enough space for the fish to graze,.

regal tank is definitely a no go in a nano. they typically need 100 gallons or more. the amount of fish depends on type. you could put gobies in there and the clown for sure. just pick fish that require small spaces. yes if you go to a hundred stores and ask a question you'll get 100 different answers. the only consistency is inconsistency when it comes to advice in this hobby.

i'd stay away from the damsel. too agressive. you cant have different types of clowns otherwise they'll fight. check with pasfur but i don't think 2 different clowns will live in a small area peacefully.
