i ordered an eclipse satwater aq kit-12 gal-i have some live rock,live sand, 1 clown, 1 crab, 1 snail. i really wanted to buy a pair of clowns, but the pet store guy said the tank was too small. is that true-what else would be ok to add? we are setting up a 75 gal next week, so i can always move something to the larger tank if needed. how many snails, crabs, etc? what are my lights strong enough to grow? one more question-after i added live rock to my sand there were little 'bugs' in the tank what r they? i dont think the pet store guy knows alot and i need some simple answers.
every1 has beautiful tanks-i am so excited about our big tank!
i want more!

i agree too many crabs and hermits disturb coral reefs, and for now your doing good with the one clown. but never speak to a pet store guy, they don't specialize on fish so it might be dangerous to take his/her advice find a fish store in your area. and in my opinion depending on your time and money i don;t think you should start with a reef tank, start with a fowlr tank first. =]
