I'm new to this board and joined because I love fish Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy . I already have one 29 fresh water commuity tank, one 20 real plant growing tank and a land/water tank with newts/ frogs in and am looking twords furtering my edu. in aquatics. I'm going to try and start a reef tank and would like to know some suggestions for statring it out. Thank you.




P.S. I want to have seahorses, ananomies (can't spell Confused ) and some beautiful looking and outsanding fish if you could suggest things to that to it would be wonderful.

I would recomend if you want color Green Mandarin fore the bottom and maby a lion fish.I have a cowfish (boxfish) witch turn heads they look like they are hovering in the water but are poisonous this is not much to be concerned about just a way to keep peoples hands out of your tank. I have had a lot of fish the only one I don't recomend are the yellow tang the most popular but they limit the other type of fish you can get in the long run they are suposed to be simi-agressive but those dam things get mean and territorial.

The lion might eat your mandarin. Lions will eat anything they can fit in there mough fish, crab, clam, shrimp, and so on. I would suggest holding off on the anenomes and seahorses for a while neither are good beginner fish and the seahorse can be extremely difficult they are reccomended as a species only tank.

ill link some good beginner sites the best thing to do is read and read some more
