Hi Bobby, welcome to the forum. I am still very new to saltwater and have found this site to be invaluable. The amount of information I have received has saved me much time and loss I'm sure. One thing I have figured out is that the pro's here have never failed to answer any question no matter how trivial it may seem.

Trust in them.

Howard

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com

Sounds like your off to a decent start. Will this be an FOWLR tank or are you leaning toward a reef? It will make a difference in your lighting.

The coral on your LR is a Xenia most likely (pronounced Zee-nee-ah) and the "blue light" is probabley an actinic blue bulb.

Got a brand name/model or is this two seperate pieces of equipment? Sounds much like a skilter.

Cheers
Steve

I have a skilter, I recommed you do the modification which consists of putting a wooden air stone in the skimmer chamber. Its fairly easy to do and it will improve the skimmer. But please note that you might want to consider a real skimmer later on depending on where you want to go with your tank. The skilter for what I've read wont give you what you need once you get into corals and such. Hope this helps!
