Just an update. I put an add on Craigslist and have multiple offers to take the fish in my tank the goldfish will be going into. So that means I can have my tank back soon!

Will start receiving my supplies from Amazon in a few days. I've never been so excited to get started!

Yes. The goldfish going in the big tank is housed in my future salt tank. Once I get my fish from the big tank sold/given away we are moving the goldfish and I can get started with the build.

Any suggestions on sand?

Don't worry about hitchhikers. Unless you get one, why worry about it?
As for corals, softies...I dislike them. I was excited about it when I first got into the hobby but that didn't last long. Wasn't my thing. I sit here now with green hairy mushrooms taking off like weeds and wondering how I'm going to manage that...literally fighting off my long tentacle anemone without problem.
When it comes to the LPS they are good choices. I really enjoy my trumpets and brain corals, be it favite or favia.

What fish are you selling Caleb? You're reasonable driving distance if it's something my wife or I would be interested in

So softies are like shrooms and grow like weeds? What to do with the extra...

It's my 45g community.

I have a guy coming soon to pick the ones he wants.

The whole tank has:
1 Angelicus Botia
10 neon tetras
5 white skirt tetras
6 guppies
1 peacock Gudgeon
1 wild blue ram
5 emerald cories
4 panda cories

NFS:
Baby dojo
5 mystery snails

I run double filtration and tank stays spotless.

Caleb getting salty!?! No way..

Probably should have asked this sooner but is there certain corals what don't work with inverts? I'm really thinking big on inverts for this tank and a single fish because of size.

I know it's simple but I love the cleaner shrimp. Just always been one of the prettiest to me.

Also like emerald crabs and sexy shrimp.

There aren't any issues between the two I'm aware of.
