Is an Aquaclear 150 sufficient filtration for a 29gallon FISH ONLY setup? (I realize I may need another filter as well)

I have heard much about wet/dry filters.. do I need one of these instead?

Sorry, I'm new to all of this Very Happy

Depends on your bio-load. You'll likely still need PHs for water movement.

Oh yes, I have a power head I'm hooking up too..

I only plan on having 3 fish in my tank. 2 clowns and a firefish goby.

I havent started even setting my tank up yet, I'm learning right now..

Would it be better to only get one clown if they arent mated pairs? I was hoping to get an Ocellaris Clown or 2.. but would they be better solitary?

my father and I kept a couple clowns in a 60 gallon that we had caught in the wild (a long time ago in SE Asia - and yes, I realize the sentence structure makes it sound like we caught the tank... Smile ), and they got along fine, but I believe they were a mated pair...

clowns can be pretty territorial and one might be the best route to go, I'm sure dodds or FB will be able to give you a definative answer on that though...

OK! Thanks. Even If I have to go with just one clown, thats OK..

So.. I would have one clown and a firefish goby. Do you have any other suggestions of what I could put in my tank? Or should I leave it at that? (its a 29 gallon)

a cardinal (bangai sp?) would be nice, they are a great fish, easy to keep and are, imo, very attractive... Smile

Yeah, I was looking at those, they are very pretty! Would they go well with my current selection?

I don't see why not, but before you finalize that plan, let one of the admins or the more experienced posters reign in... Smile

the bangaii is a shy fish and usually leaves everybody alone (except another bangaii...), I believe it needs a cave too...

whatever you decide... good luck!

as for filtration... live rock, protein skimmer (a Hang on Back type) and that aquaclear should be fine... I'd use the aquaclear for mechanical filtration...
