Hey Pea, I'm new here and also looking into starting my first reef tank. Knowyourtank gave good advice. Take your time and research. I originally was planning a 6 gallon nano tank, but after research decided to go larger, as smaller tanks require a lot more work, and variables can go wrong quickly. I also wanted to do clowns and an anemone, but I've read horror stories of the anemone moving around the tank and stinging all the corals. 13.5 gallon is very small, and the anemone will do damage in no time. I was also planning sps, but those also seem to require a lot of work and a matured tank, so I will do lps for now and maybe sps later. Good luck with your setup!

Larger tank equals more stable parameters I went from a 29 gal to a 90 gal with a 45 gal sump and it was a lot easier to maintain everything
