I'd use 15lbs, the more the better. But $190 for a Dragonette?? Or am I just reading wrong?

No, 190$ to boost the tank up to saltwater. The fish is probably like 10 XD they actually don't seem very hard to take care of, as long as you have the correct food.

They are like any other fish. Its getting them to eat once they are in your tank thats the trick. Some will, some won't. you never know.

Hey, I'm trying to calculate the price, I'm up to 200$ without coral, but everything else included. Would a Dragonet hurt any corals? And is the tank too small for something like a starfish or maybe a scallop of some sort?

No, the dragonette won't harm the corals. Star fish i believe are to big for a 10g tank. But, if you were to put one in, the Chocolate Chip and the Sand Sifter are not very big to start. A scallop, hmm, not really sure about that one. Why not I would guess, They are not very big and won't get very big (3"). Good question there. You;ll have to watch your water parameters because of the feeding you;ll have to administer.

My LFS( both, actually) have scallops, one is VERY saltwater based, it does have fReshwater fish but a majority of it is dedicated to saltwater. That saltwater one has like 10 of the ones with blue insides, I don't know what they're called, but they're decent sized. My favorite LFS, mostly freshwater, but does carry Saltwater, where I went today, has 2 of those blue ones and 1 Flame Scallop. Are these OK scallops?

edit: I just googled it, they were clams, not scallops. Too big, I'm guessing. I guess just corals it is.

Flame Scallop have the red inside, I dont know what the blue ones are, but they sound like Crocea or Maxima clams. And those you could keep for a time, but they will outgrow the tank easily.
