I'm sure it'll look wonderful! I wish I had a third led though.

Good! The cycle is almost over. I am going to be picking up three or four more good sized rocks. Than mollie wants to get a breading pair of tomatoe clowns, than the coral buying begins. It is going good though. Snails are literally the dumbest things ever. All over and in our filter in my powerhead!

I'm ready for the fun to begin!

tomato clowns are realy cool, but i wouldnt recommend more then 1 in a 20 gallon since they are one of the bigger clownfish, plus they can get aggresive. go for perculas or ocellaris clowns i have a pair and they are easy to care for + good looking and most likely they will breed for you if you take good care of them. i'd reccomed a flame hawk, now keeping a flame hawk with any other fish would be slightly over crowding your tank so you would need a good filtration system, and step up on water changes. (flame hawks are known to jump so you would need a cover)

Right on! Thanks for the info there.
I have kind of a noob question lol. I was wondering if I could use the same bucket that I do water changes in for my freshwater. Like this.. I would use this bucket to take the water out of m freshwater and use the same bucket to remove and add saltwater. After rinsing the bucket out of course. You don't think that could cross contaminate anything do you? I mean I use the same gravel vac.. I would use a different thing to add water to the freshwater.. It's water changing night and I'm down one bucket lol... Help?

if you want to play it safe use diffrent buckets but honestly there's a low propobility bacteria from your fresh water will survive in your saltwater and vise versa.

Are u still sure u want corals, you would have to buy a whole new test kit to test phosphates and other elements, plus corals require special lighting, also some fish eat coral. I would realy advice u to just play with live rock.

check out liveaquriua.com it will give you all the specifications of the fish/coral u like. if liveaquria sais that a certain fish requires 30 gallons, most likely it'll fit in a 20, just come back to the forum to make sure

I have 10k lighting and not all corrals need LPS there is SPS corals also. My lighting is like fine with my actinic bulb also. I don't want just fish. I'm also not going to over stock it with fish lol. I'm doing a nano tank. I will have around four fish in the tank. I knew bacteria wouldn't grow in the salt or vise versus but I was conserned more about the non RO water I use in my fresh.. Sorry for the confusion. I have a master test kit with everything I need to test for
