Thank you for telling me! So I think I will get a 20 gallon tank what would you recommend for stocking it?ryanr said:Hi,
Have a read of the stickies in the Saltwater Beginner's forum as well as some of the threads in the Nano Saltwater section (Nano Saltwater Tanks - Fish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum).
Nano tanks are not easy, and finding stock to suit is very difficult. IMO, there's no fish that should be put in less than a 20G. Some inverts can be ok, and with proper husbandry, some corals can be ok too.
Most Saltwater species grow too big, but some can do ok in smaller tanks. Check out some of the species in the Nano Saltwater Fish section Small Saltwater Fish Tank (nano) Species
Flame Hawks are awesome, so funny to watch. They also enjoy shrimp, so be careful choosing a hawk.Jesterrace said:It's a bit of a stretch but if you want something really interesting you could try a Flame Hawkfish (but you can't stock it with really small fish or it will eat them). Tons of personality and they hop around from rock to rock.
Yes, forgot to mention they can find smaller inverts to be snacks.ryanr said:Flame Hawks are awesome, so funny to watch. They also enjoy shrimp, so be careful choosing a hawk.
