Quote: "The way out is through"
About Yourself: I started out with a beta in a fish bowel and eventually i got my 20g tank. It was originally freshwater but i soon changed to saltwater because of the variety it brings.
Fish Kept: 2 False Ocellaris Clown, 1 Blue Velvet Damsle, 1Coral Banded Shrimp, 1 Camel Shrimp. 1 clam
Corals/Plants: Purple Brush Gorgonia, and the clam has various corals and sponges groing on it.
Tank Size: 20 gallons
Advice: Don't overstock your tank. Ive had my tank for about 2 years and have had to redo some things due to overstocking. If your new get a non-adjustable heater it makes maintaining the water temp. easier. Saltwater is as easy as freshwater along as you have time to maintane your tank and saltwalter is somewhat more expensive to do so than freshwater.
