    I currently have a 10 gallon tank set up with an ocellaris clown, a hermit, and an unknown variety of anemone. I am getting everything together to start a 66 gallon long tank that will be set up with fish and live rock. If there is anything else you want to know feel free to ask.

    Hey everyone thanks so much for the welcome...quick question...what kind of salt do you use to mix the water for your tanks? Do you prefer instant ocean or oceanic?

    Hello and welcome!!

    Salt is really a personal preference. I've always used Instant Ocean.

    I was asking because I have used both for my land hermit crabs and they seemed to prefer the instant ocean but wasn't sure which other people preferred for their tanks.

    Welcome Mom. Salt is purely a preference. Personally, I use Salinty salt for my tank.
