    maroon clownfish

    To start off with, are you getting a gold barred maroon, or a regular one with the white bars? I have experience with the white bars which are notorious for being the most aggressive of the clownfish species, while the gold bar is a little more passive.

    29g biocube lighting

    depends on how many bulbs, and more importantly if it has individual reflectors. you dont want a light with reflectors that is one piece of aluminum, bent in different spots, but each light has its own piece of aluminum Anyways, now that i think about it, that should be enough either way

    24g Aquapod vs 29g Biocube

    yea a pistol shrimp should have no problem fitting in a 5 gallon tank since they dig all day. As someone else mentioned, make sure your rocks touch the glass, and give it a nice deep sand bed. Hint: the trick i used to keep my shrimp in the front of the tank was to put more sand in the front...

    New lighting system help

I'm glad i got your reply, because on a similar post, i was told that much light was excessive for a 55 gallon tank. btw, i...
