Im in a similar situation. Fishlore is always supposed to be a supportive place but also fact. This eing said, Is it reccomended to start a saltwater tank so small? no. is it possible? yes. heres what you'll need to help make it more possible.
An Auto Top Off System
A Saltwater Refractometer
I've looked into ATO and im definitely getting one. Just a case of what i get. But as for water changes, Ive done some research and your don't want to do tons of big water changes. you just want the tank to crawl not run. If you try to make the tank do absolutely amazing then there is a higher...
Hello! Long time no post!
I just wanted to have some guidance along my trip with this PICO tank. Its a tank of 5g with a built in filtration unit. this leaves 3 gallons of (swim space). It would be idiotic and irresponsible to try to put a fish in the tank so just corals. Any suggestions on...
Honestly, i would disagree. They can be very very difficult to understand and care for.It's also never an easy thing to bond with a fish. You need to treat ever single fish differently and with respect. Making it very different than a mammal. Other than that Love it!
What is the water volume of the tank?
How long has the tank been running?
Does it have a filter?
Does it have a heater?
What is the water temperature?
What is the entire stocking of this tank? (Please list all fish and inverts.)
How often do you change the water?
How much of...

I would do a clown fish pair + CUC.
You'll maybe have 9-10ish gallons of swimming water. This leaves no room for other fish due to territory and you're gonna max out your bioload. Then you can save more money for your corals also!
Very interesting. Im thinking about buying my clown pair back from the Gun Shop i sold them to, I loved those guys. They would bicker over hiding food for their host. Intense battle were fought in the good old biocube at feeding time. I'm gonna get measurements and i'll start the plan! I...
Wow, I really did think that diamonds would pair up with a pistol! My uncle does have a diamond already in a seperate tank. So, I think i'll go with the YWG/PS combo! Would it be possible to keep a pair of clowns with them? I don't know how agressive the shrimp are due to me never setting them...
its a salty tank! Each little cubby on top is 10 gallons. each on bottom is 30 gallons. It has a very large sump that holds another 90 gallons of water. so thats 180 gallons total.
there are 6 on top and 3 on bottom
