 Okay,  having  spent  some  time  on  freshwater  aquaria  I  finally  decided  to  take  a  plunge  to  the  salty  side.  The  objective  is  to  keep  a  FOWLR  display  in  my  living  room  with  nothing  more  than  a  few  very  select  fishes.  
 
 I  added  about  3  kg  of  sea  sand,  3  kg  of  live  rock  together  in  my  25  litre  bowfront  tank  which  is  currently  lit  with  a  cheap  18watt  Power  Compact  light  and  a  power  head  to  keep  things  moving.
 
 Will  be  spending  the  next  week  or  so  to  let  the  tank  cycle  and  do  its  thing  patiently.
 
 I  definitely  need  help  in  identifying  places  (LFS?)  in  Hyderabad  that  I  can  pick  my  fishes  from.  Hyd  folks  -  suggestions?
 
 Also  will  be  doing  a  lot  of  reading  on  which  fishes  can  be  considered  at  this  point.  Am  not  in  a  hurry  so  keep  your  suggestions  piling  in.  
 
 I  hope  to  be  able  to  post  updates  to  this  thread  in  a  'journal'  sort  of  way  to  be  able  to  track  my  journey  and  look  forward  to  your  guidance  guys.

 hmmmm..
 
 A  larger  one  would  have  been  better  for  the  start..
 I  found  my  90  gallon  smaller  in  just  about  6  months..
 
 Anyway..  all  the  best...
 
 Hope  you  get  the  skimmer  before  adding  any  fishes...

 Time  for  a  quick  update  guys:
 
 -  Now  a  total  of  10  kg  live  rock  (not  very  'live'  when  I  received  it  to  be  honest);
 -  Added  one  Clarkii  clown  fish,  2  yellow  tail  damsels;  and  2  sand  club  anemones  over  a  period  of  2  weeks
 
 Take  a  look  at  the  pictures  below  ...  My  clown  likes  both  anemones  and  as  of  today  morning  has  been  'poking'  and  resting  in.  Am  worried  that  my  clown  is  a  bit  too  large  for  the  anemones  but  will  let  nature  do  its  bit...

 25  litre  is  too  small  a  marine  aquarium.  The  chances  of  you  succeding  with  that  setup  is  not  high.  Also  it  may  be  a  bit  early  for  the  anemones.  
 
 Aquarium  World  gets  good  marine,  however  they  are  overpriced.
 Sea  World  in  Secunderabad  is  another  option,  they  too  are  priced  on  the  higher  side.
 
 I  hear  hobby  hub  in  In-Orbit  Mall  too  stacks  marine  products.  I  am  yet  to  see  what  they  have.
 
 All  the  best  Manohar.
 
 
 Regards
 Jay

 Jay,
 
 Hobby  Hub  does  not  have  much  in  stock,  but  they  do  place  orders  on  your  behalf  that  they  deliver  within  a  week  or  so.  Checkout  the  livestock  well  before  purchase  -  I  picked  my  Clarkii  from  there  but  one  of  them  had  dropsy.  Luckily  my  arguments  worked  and  I  got  a  replacement  ..  
 
 On  another  note  -  beginners  luck  probably  -  my  Clarkii  has  been  feeding  the  anemone.  Hopefully  he  will  host.
 
 picture
 
 How  does  one  upload  pictures  on  this  forum?  Please  point  me  in  the  right  direction  guys  ...

 Club  anemones  will  not  host  clown  fishes,  u  need  to  get  a  carpet  or  tentacle  anemone
 
 IMO  carpet  or  tentacle  will  be  too  big  for  your  tank  size.

 wow,  you  set  up  a  6  gallon  tank  and  added  2  anemones  in  less  than  3  weeks!  Hope  you  made  sure  your  tank  was  cycled.  Also  Clarkii  clowns  gets  kinda  big,  Perc  or  Ocellaris  clown  would  have  been  a  good  choice  for  a  tank  this  size.  In  a  small  tank  like  this  parameters  fluxuation  will  be  high  and  will  be  hard  to  keep  it  stable,  so  keep  an  eye  on  all  your  water  parameters  and  do  a  gallon  water  change  every  week.  Honestly  you  don't  need  an  anemone  to  keep  clowns  happy  (whatever  the  LFS  guy  may  say).
 You  rock  work  looks  great!

 Sorry,  but  too  much,  too  quickly  an  on  too  small  a  tank.
 
 If  this  is  your  first  marine  tank  you  should  be  looking  at  4  x  the  volume  at  least  to  learn  the  ropes.
 
 I  have  been  keeping  marine  (succesfully)  for  20+  years,  but  would  never  consier  a  6  gallon  tank  for  anything  other  that  fish  QT.
