    If you can't have a clown fish your tank, maybe you should have one on the forum.  Keep up the research - Cliff

    A 14 gallon will limit your stocking choices. I would not suggest either a anemone that a clown fish would host in or clown fish for a small tank that size. There are, however, lots of other cool looking fish (like some gobies) that would work nicely in your tank

    But first, I would suggest you make sure your tank is cycled before adding any fish. The below links should be very helpful

    I have also moved your thread to the correct section of the forum
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Great advice Cliff. +1

    Gobies are the way to go in a 14 gallon tank.
    Having the tank cycled is the most important step of this process.

    Goby1_zps8c88e0cb.jpgCopepod's are vital to a Goby's health, my mandarin will eat nothing but Copepod's. So it's more than just cycling when hosting a Mandarin or Psychedelic Goby. A copepod population is easy to build to self sustaining by using live phytoplankton, available at most SW fish shops. Just takes a little time.

    The mandarin is one of my favourite fish, I was thinking more on the lines of a Watchman goby. But if your into a challenge then why not go for the ultimate Goby around. A skunk cleaner shrimp (small one), would be fun to watch in a bio-cube. Once it gets to be around 2 1/2 inches you may want to trade it in for another smaller one if you can.
    My copepod population is getting there in my 55 gallon but I'm still holding off on a mandarin for now.
    Awesome picture Surfdog.
