Resist the urge to make an impulse fish purchase while visiting your local saltwater fish store if you don't know about the species. They want to sell fish and they want you to buy fish! Period. Take note of the species you are interested in and then find all the information you can on them. Many saltwater fish species can be very difficult to get eating in the home aquarium. The first thing you should ask the shop keeper to do is show you the fish eating. The better stores will mark on the label all the pertinent information about the fish, including whether or not it is eating.Anglers can get recognized for catching at least 10 different Life List species and becoming a member of a Life List Fish Club.

Any fish tank from 10 to 30 gallons could be considered a small saltwater fish tank for the purposes of this article. Really, any saltwater tank under 30 gallons is going to be a chore to maintain (my opinion of course, to each his own). Nano tanks are often considered even smaller. It should also be noted that the smaller the fish tank the harder it is to keep in my opinion. Larger tanks provide so many more options for both equipment and fish species and I strongly urge any new hobbyists to get the largest tanks they can accommodate. Leave the smaller specialty for when you become more experienced later on.Finding small saltwater fish tank species for a small marine aquarium (nano tanks) is not difficult and they are often easily found in local saltwater reef stores and online. If you have a small saltwater aquarium it is vital to keep it lightly stocked and your water parameters stable. Make sure you research any fish you decide to get before you go to the store. Do not make that impulse buy or you may regret it later.Obviously, the list above is just my opinion from years of being around them and don't take these recommendations as gospel. Research the species on your own and form your own opinion before you buy them. Look into the gobies, basslets, along with some of the wrasses and blennies for more ideas on small saltwater fish species.
