Hello! I have just begun to get into the world of saltwater aquariums, and would like to get feedback on my possible setup and stocking list! Note: All these items are suggestions and thoughts, nor are final. This entire setup is intended to be under $350 or under, and would like to keep that with any setup. Equipment -Tank and Filter: Grreat Choice 10 Gallon Aquarium Kit -Light: Orbit Marine Led 18" -Heater: Eheim Jager (75 watts) -ATO: Custom ATO found on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AutoTopoff-Nano-Water-Level-Controller-for-Reef-Aquarium-Auto-Top-Off-ATO-/172782246208?hash=item283a9fd940:g:UOwAAOSwmLlYB52i -Salt and Hydrometer: Both Instant Ocean brand -Powerhead: Hydor Koralia Nano 425 -10 lbs of Live Sand and Dry Rock each: To buy at LFS -Automaric Feeder: Ani Mate Automatic Aquarium Fish Feeder (would like to upgrade to Grasslin Rondomatic, later) Stocking I would like to be conservative with stocking, but still have a diverse reef. Here is what I will add, but in what order should I add them in? Fish: Ocellaris Clownfish CUC: Sexy Shrimp pair (I still haven't decided on what CUC should mainly consist of, but would like to avoid any types of crabs if nessesary) Corals: I would just like a few soft corals, both because of looks and budget restraints for lighting. A toadstool coral, GSP, and Xenia are what I've thought would look nice and fit in well. Being new still comes with questions, and here are mine: What should I feed my tank (staple and supplemental), and how often? I would like to use pellet foods, if I can. With my general stocking plan, how much water will need to be changed, and how often (a biweekly 1.5 gallon water change is what I think will be necessary, but I would like to extend the time between water changes as much as possible)? Will plain Instant Ocean salt supplement the tank? I thank you for your time, and would like to hear from you soon! - Generic Reefer
