fish day is ALWAYS exciting! esp the first fish. yeah just stick with the 120w ones and youll be more than happy. also make sure you monitor the levels closely for the first 2 weeks or so of having that first fish in.

One question, I have an API Freshwater master test kit which has ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate tests in it. Will these same tests work for saltwater or do I have to buy the saltwater kit?

For ammonia nitrite and nitrate there the same tests. But there are others you need like phosphates , mg, dkh, and calc if you plan on keeping a reef

you don't really need one in front of you to judge your trates. darker orange into red signifies high nitrates. in a perfect scenario, you'd want it yellowish, maybe with a slight orange hue
