There are 2 or 3 corals that can get out of and quick in the tank one is green star polyps, xenia, blue cloves, encrusting gorgonian and waving hand (anthelia). Well that list is bigger than I thought in the beginning of this post. Before you get any of that list of corals research and make sure you can control it in your tank and can actually grow over slower growing corals.

I bought the book Saltwater for Dummies. It helped me out so much. And just reading this forum has helped a lot.

To save money on rock, go with 30lbs of baserock and 3-5lbs on live rock

Hi. welcome to the forum!

Did you rinse the sand before putting it in? Did you mix the salt water in a separate container and then add it or did you just add the salt directly to the tank? It can take a few days for cloudiness to dissipate so just be patient.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It wont hurt anything at this stage since you don't have any livestock, but in the future mix it in a different container and then add it. Since you didn't rinse the sand you will have that haze for a few days at most, it will go away and settle down soon enough.

How are you planning to cycle the tank?
