    It depends alot on the type of fish you add. Make sure you read about the needs of the fish you choose. There are a lot that need room to roam. Generally a marine tank has less fish & more inverts & corals. If you like clowns they are a great starter but don't mix them. Do lots of reading before you buy anything & don't trust the local fish store to answer your questions, chances are you know more than them!
    Reef tanks are great have a look at some of the fish other people have in their tanks & check the size as a comparison this should give you a good idea of what's a good choice.

    Good luck Trigger

    Linda, we need more to go on. What type of system do you have? Skimmer? How big? Sump? What type of biological filtration? Live rock? how much? pumps for circulation? how many?
    A 50 gallon tank with not much filtration might hold a couple of fish and a cleaner shrimp. But with more details, we'll be able to help a little more.
