I remember when I was new...I didn't know myself. I was fortunate enought to have bought a tank from someone who already had pc. But I wouldn't have known. I didn't realize what I was getting into. Now I know, but I didn't then. I think that when we are told from LFS how easy it is, it dosen't seem like we are doing something wrong by buying a tank and diving right in. But this person is here now, let's help him/her! Let's set the story straight, just realize he/she is just beginning!

Hang in there, Saltwatercrazy!

And don't take anything that anyone on the site says personally. Everyone here really loves this hobby, loves the wildlife, and hates to see suffering (plenty of people out there don't care). I think that people are probably more upset with the fish store, than they are with you. You have taken the time and care enough to come here, so my hat is off to you for coming to get help. You've taken the first step and are getting better lighting, so keep it up.

Don't know what size tank you have but check out some of the lights on this page. I have them, as do many on this site. Sounds like it might be the right thing for your tank.

Let us know how it goes.
