Newbie here

Hey guys. I'm just stopping in to say hello. I'm pretty new to this and I've finally gotten my tank up. It's a 58 gallon reef ready with a sump system. I have the 36 inch marineland reef capable LED's on there now, and I'm not sure how that's going to play out once I actually can obtain corals. Any information on tuis would be awesome. Thanks and I look forward to all the help I can get from here. Also here's a pic so far with 100 lbs of Tatoka liverock and 2 clowns, falcon hawk, sailfin tang, purple pseudo, and a yellow watchman goby in there somewhere.

Can you take a closer picture of your liverock setup, it looks like it is quite densely packed.

i'm sure the marineland reef LEDs are good for low light corals, maybe even mid light but they are not to powerful.

if you're lookign at LEDs look into the retro fit kits from rapidled, you could prob go with their 48 LED kit and be good to house anythign you want

Hi,
Nice setup.
Are you planning to upgrade in the future? Your sailfin tang (I believe it's him in the pic there ) is just a little guy now, but he'll grow more that a foot long and will need at least 180 gallons with lots of swim room.
You can take a look here:
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Sailfin Tang
He is a beauty! I wish I could have one, but even when I have a large tank eventually, it's gonna be 150 gal - still not enough for this tang.

I do plan on upgrading to a larger tank. And the liverock to me has plenty of room around and through it it seems

Yup definitely some neat rock! You could look into some nice brightly colored ricordeas, or some mushrooms (I like the bright red ones), maybe some lower light LPS or other soft corals too. Liveaquaria.com is a great site to research corals.
