    Basically, it's beacuse i don't have much room left for a larger tank and I don't really have the money, to buy all new filters, equipment, lighting and the actual tank.... I only really want a small set up with some basic fish

    The list I mentioned earlier in this thread would work but there is very little that can be sustained in such a small tank.

    How much past experience do you have with marine aquariums? I hope your project is could turn out to be pretty impressive as long as you remain diligent with the maintenance.

    If you want to experiment with a small setup it's your choice. Not disagreeing with anything said as larger certainly a wiser choice.

    Important You make the decision.

    I currently do have a 7 gallon saltwater for a specific service. Could introduce live rock, snails, small crabs, would be great. Fish tho is abit small for that and not advise.

    Hi, So I was going to post some pics, but found that the Biorb is actually a really bad tank , and have replaced it with a 48l Interpet fish box, with a cleaner shrimp and a blue legged hermit - so far. Thanks for all the help!

    Try a pistol shrimp/shrimpgoby combo for your new tank. They're really fun to watch, but it's best to research them first.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
