    My son would like to have a small tank in his bedroom. He is 8 years old. I bought 6 months ago 3 Designer Clownfishes. The smaller one was being bullied by others so I moved her to my Frag Tank. I really like her and want to keep her. I really like that Tank. I think it would be perfect, small, nice neat design. Do you think I could keep that small Clown and small Anemone in that Tank and mostly important would that Light support that Anemone? It is 18 W LED. Let me know, please. I have been reefing for 15 years but always had a big tanks.I know some my say it is too small but I saw a lot of small set ups like that. Thanks for future advices. Happy Reefing

    I can't help on the LED lights but the tank should be fine with a clown and anemone.....have to watch it more carefully and do regular water changes to keep things in balance. I would say you could keep two clowns in a 10 gallon.

    AI Prime and a clown and a RBTA would be real nice.

    I have AI Hydra on my other tanks. I'm sure Prime would look good on that Tank. But I don't want to put that much money now. I don't know how good that 18w Skkye Led light is unfortunately...
