    If my tank has Nutra seawater and live sand, and doing water changes wit Nutra Seawater, do I still need to add anything to the tanks.

    It depends on what plan to do with your tank. You must check you water readings, pH, salinity, etc. If you plan to have hard corals then you'll need to other mineral levels in that tank.

    Thanks for your reply. I plan to have about 4 beginner corals a couple of dwarf feather duster and about 6 small fish ( 1" size).
    I do have the minerals on hand. Thanks for your reply.

    6 fish in a 10 gal is a no no. Maybe a clown goby and fire fish. Your coral stock sounds fine tho

    Ok thanks, I will adhere to your advice. Maybe later on down the line, I will do a 30 gallon or larger. I've had a 100 gallon tall before in California, but just fish.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Np. Bigger is always better. Its really tough getting alot of your fav fish in smaller tanks. Under 75 per say
