Planning First Salt Tank

    I'm new to fish, been keeping two betta tanks for just a couple months and about to do a shrimp tank, but I've been thinking about doing my first salt tank sometime in the near future.

    I was really wanting to do a tank with a couple seahorses, a clownfish and a starfish. I've only done some research so far, but was wanting your opinions on tank size and other things I should consider before jumping in.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    I would do a LOT of research about seahorses before investing in them. They do best in a species only tank, and probably shouldn't be housed with fish.

    As for a clown and starfish, the smallest I would consider is 20G, but 30G+ would be better.

    There's a lot of info in the SW Beginner's stickies that will help with your research.
