    Welcome to the forum. :D

    170 liters is about 45 gallons. What type of fish are you interested in ? Community fish or more of a species tank.

    What I would suggest would be to visit LiveAquaria and see what they offer. Choose what you like and let us know. We'll tell you what will and won't work. :D

    I'm interested in clown fish and angel fish. Possibly have one or two teripins in the tank if they get along with the fish!?!

    My My My...the list will go on forever assuming your not meaning WITH the teripin.

    Are you interested in Peaceful, Moderate, Or Aggressive species?

    Also, are you interested in a species only or mixture as in a community setup?

    IF it's for the 45g you'll be limited as to the adult size of fish to be chosen.
    45g would make a good species only or community tank. Also would be a sweet planted setup.

    You are aware that you will have to do a freshwater OR saltwater tank correct ? The fish you listed above are both saltwater and freshwater, which cannot be housed in the same tank.

    :) Okay, just making sure. Some people would try that so I always make it a point to differentiate the two.
