Thanks for the startup advice!

My tank has been running for over a month now and doing spectacularly well. I want to thank everyone who helped me out during that time with generous advice!

I think the best thing I did was buy LR from established tanks. No cycling, stable water parameters, and lots of seed life. The 400W MH lights have also helped the flourishing of the few corals that came on the rocks as well as the lovely algae. Some rock that was bare white a month ago is now completely covered in purple, red, and green coralline. How exciting!

Thanks everyone!
