I'm new to the saltwater too but i'm finding out it's not a good idea to try short cuts. I tried cheap hang on filters and I'm now replacing them with a sump and overflow so I wasted a lot of money on the other filters. A good skimmer is definitly a good idea too. I was use to just rushing through things with my freshwater tanks but you really can't do that with salt. The live rock was the biggest surprise for me, it cost a fortune!

Thanks... I have some more stuff I just have to upload them to Photobucket. Also the RBTA that was in the back ground move toward the from right underneath the Acropora so I move the Acro to the back.
