Hey there, I'm from Overland Park, KS and hubby and I just started setting up our first salt water tank. We just put in 3 snails and 2 yellow tailed damselfish as test subjects to make sure the tank is ready for more permanent and expensive residents. We have a 75 gal
. tank and are getting all our advice from some very newbie friendly people at "Paradise Aquatics" located at 119th street and approximately Metcalf Ave. They've been extremely helpful in testing our tank water for free and giving non-salesman-like advice. In fact, this evening we went in to buy our favorite fish to begin stocking and were advised to just get the "tester" fish we ended up getting to start with so as not to waste our money in case there was still something off with the tank. I recommend them highly and also welcome any advice from this site as my family continues to "test the waters" this year.
