I have always had fresh water tanks but I wanted to try salt water, this is my first tank, I got it around feb 1st.

2 Clowns
1 Choclatechip Starfish
1 Cleaner Shrimp

Eventually I think I will get a reef tank like 100 gallons, but I just wanted to get use to the whole saltwater thing, tell me what you think?

Very Pretty :) Have you thought about adding Live Rock? I think it would be hugely beneficial in a smaller tank like this so that you dont have to deal with as many water changes to keep your nitrates down...

Here's an update on the tank so far...

Nothing has died yet including my goldies, (due to weekly water changes), I have added a hermit crab (not sure what type he's about the size of a quater), a turbo snail, and 5 #s of LR. Tell me what ya think!?

looks alot better with the lr (and im sure your fish are much happier)

I dont mind the taller plants in the middle and left (there silk right?) Silk isnt so unnatural but the plastic one on the right is a little fake lookin.

only thing I would reccomend is getting maybe 2-3 more pounds of lr to give the rock work some height.

I know they won't go in it, the pink tip is just a hardy anenome, I just wanted the look, the clowns will probably end up eatin or something!!
