My 28g Nano Build

Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this forum and would like to say this is a great place with a ton of information. I've been a aquarium hobbyist for about 8 years now but have never gotten into saltwater...until now!

I have been lurking around on this forum and others for a while always checking out nano tanks and amazed at how good they look. I was at my LFS yesterday and ended up leaving with the following items:

-JBJ 28g Nano Cube CF-Quad
-21 lbs of caribbean live rock
-25 gallons of premixed saltwater (LFS is close to me, so I said why not)

I got everything set up last night and wow was it cloudy. Here is a picture of it from last night.


So it eventually started to clear up a bit before I went to bed and here and new pictures from this morning.





I'm going to be getting a new camera because all I have is my iphone at the moment. I think about going to get about 10-15 more lbs of live rock when I go back to the LFS.

I will take any advice as well along the way of this build. Thanks

So I believe I had something living in one of my live rocks...i see this red thing move a little and seen a puff of sand come out of the hole like something kicked it out.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Welcome to AA. Hope you keep is updated on your tank. And If you can get a better pic of the creature in the rock maybe we could help identify it

Ok while I was trying to get a better picture of this thing inside a piece of liverock I observed it snapping back in the rock very quick. The first pic is with it out, then the second is when it moved back in. I have no idea what it is.
