Ahhh i totally understand. lol I have enough money to start a new build and get some fish OR I can buy new bulbs for the 125g. Money is getting a bit tight.

You could start off with some clown fish, easy to care for and easy to feed. And unless you pick out some designer clowns they are pretty cheap too

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

Not good being broke. There is no emergency in starting this project, just remember, there is no way to stop unless you sell off your live stock or worse let them die. I had financial problems right after 9/11 and I couldn't maintain my reef. I watched it slowly decline and years of work go out the door. It, and I, are back now, but only after spending lots of $$$ and a lot of time.

And I'll be ordering from Diver's Den, so I got to make all those arrangements when the time comes.

I'm still not kosher with my readings cause I'm not 100% sure what I need to stay at or how to stay at it.

No, must not have done enough pwc's I guess. Looks like I still need to do more. Unless the 2 tiny tiny star fish and the 1 snail are doing it.

Did you have the lfs check your water for you. I have my lfs check mine arpox once a month or if I get a strange reading just to make sure my tests are still accurate.

You will get to where the coral will alert you to any water issues. Some of mine are more sensitive than the test kit is.
