 Hi  All,
 
 I  am  Prabaharan  and  newly  joined  to  this  group.  I  have  owned  my  Fresh  water  aquarium  for  past  15  years.
 
 Now,  I  want  to  build  my  new  Saltwater  Aquarium  with  brown  and  Black  Clownfish  and  some  soft  corals.  My  previous  tank  size  is  2.5  X  1  X  1.5.
 
 I  don’t  know  whether  this  tank  is  enough  to  main  clown  fish?  Please  suggest  me.
 
 If  yes,  then  how  many  fishes  I  can  maintain  with  tank?
 
 If  no,  then  what  is  the  enough  tank  size  to  maintain  4  or  6  clown  fishes.
 
 Please  help  me  to  make  my  salt  water  aquarium.
 
 Thanks  in  Advance.
 
 Thanks,
 Prabaharan

 Thanks  for  your  reply  on  this.
 
 Currently  I  don't  know  about  SW  aquarium.  Now  I  am  exploring  about  this.
 
 for  fresh  water,  I  think  this  tank  size  is  enough.  But  I  am  not  sure  about  SW  Aquarium.

 Dear  
 Even  in  FW  this  size  aint  enough!
 Men  they  always  want  it  bigger?
 SW  hobby  is  complicated,  expensive  then  FW.
 
 1)  Get  a  tank
 2)  Plan  the  stock  as  per  size  of  the  tank  (Clowns  are  not  guppies,  do  some  research)  Soft  corals  you  cant  have  because  you  are  a  novice  and  corals  would  require  very  stringent  water  parameters  which  you  could  initially  not  succeed  maintaining.  Suggest  you  start  with  cheap  fish  such  as  mollies  for  your  new  setup  keep  them  for  a  couple  of  months  see  whats  happening  before  adding  the  actual  SW  fish.
 3)  plan  filtration  ie  sump  (i  would  never  recommend  back  sump)  There  are  various  methods  for  filtration  eg.  Hybrid,  trickle,  refug,  moving  bed,ATS  etc  go  whatever  suits  you.  I  dont  recommend  any  brand  though  but  dont  go  with  weipro  skimmers.
 4)  For  fowlr  go  with  any  lights  no  worries.
 5)  Buy  certain  accessories  such  as  wavemaker,  glass  cleaner  (scrapper  and  magnet),  thermometer,  ph  probe,  testing  kit,  Synthetic  salt,  refrectometer.  nets  etc  etc
 6)  Substrate  buy  calcium  based.  Ie  arogonite  sand  and  for  LR  you  need  atleast  half  kg  of  rock  dry  weight  per  4  ltrs  of  water.
 
 after  setting  up  plumbing  and  electric  board  cross  check  everything.  This  is  when  we  fuse  up  them  wavemakers.   Chuckle  
 
 After  introducing  saltwater:
 Start  the  cycle  by  putting  mollies  in  the  tank,  you  wanna  drip  acclimate  them  before  directly  snappin  them.
 chk  the  water  parameters  for  
 ammonia  should  be  zero
 nitrite  should  be  zero
 nitrate  should  be  less  then  1  ppm
 
 There  are  a  millions  of  ways  to  control  these  parameters.
 Two  of  the  easiest  are  carbon  ie  vodka,  sugar  or  vinegar  or  introducing  encapsulated  bacterias.
 
 This  may  be  easy  as  it  sound  but  do  complete  research  before  you  start  up  your  tank.  I  had  to  be  concise  if  you  have  any  more  queries  pm  me.
 
 Share  your  location.
 
 People  who  start  sw  without  proper  research  end  up  crashing  their  tanks.  Hence  advice  is  go  slow  go  forever.
 
 Best  of  luck  to  the  underworld  of  sw  fishes..

 You  need  to  first  decide  where  you  are  planning  to  keep  the  marine  tank.  See  what  space  is  available  there  for  you  to  keep  the  tank.
 
 Then  decide  the  tank  size,  and  then  prepare  the  inventory  on  what  all  equipments  you  need  to  set  for  that  tank  size.  Calculate  the  budget  required  for  procuring  all  those  items.  With  the  budget,  you  can  decide  on  what  size  tank  you  need.
 
 Please  be  aware  initial  investment  to  set  a  marine  tank  is  very  high  compared  to  a  planted/freshwater  tank.
 
 When  I  say  high,  its  when  you  go  with  the  best  equipments  that  you  need  for  the  tank  (ex:  Skimmer,  wavemaker,  light  etc)..   Thumb Up
