Good luck! The best learning is through trial and error and I hope it's not an expensive learning experience! lol
Trust me, after I seen this guy today I really wanted to go big! Lol! Thanks tho, I'm hoping it will all turn out good! I'm gonna search the forum or google some DIY lighting. I realllllllly want coral! Especially nems
so pretty! My thoughts are if I can maintain something small then I will gain the confidence to go really big! Especially since I will have an empty 55g soon (which I'm really up in the air with what I'm gonna do with) since I just got a new 150 off CL
an will be moving my African Cichlids over too
