Hi all!, I'm new here. I've read and researched for about 4 months before picking up my tank. It's a 55g, approx. 50 lbs of "ROCK" because most is no longer "Live Rock". Did have a 300w Visitherm that started shooting grey clouds of mercury into the water, making it smell like burnt rubber and bad eggs! The lighting is well i'm not going to say because its only temporary. The skimmer I have is a Sea Storm 70 by Sea Life? I think? Its not skimming
Have two Rio Plus 400's in the mail along with a test kit. LFS
has neither. Would just like some feedback on how its coming along, with some tips on how to fix the skimmer and where to get the bang for my buck on lighting! (Want corals later!) The first is about week 3, the second picture is about week 5-6.
