I hate to rant and rave but i need someone who understands to hear this. I can not stand when people assume things are just going to "work" in an aquarium. My friend and her husband have a 42 bowfront reef. Its been up maybe a month and its crammed with corals and fish that will out grow it in no time. She "claims" her husband researches it all and i seriously doubt it. Im going to school for marine biology and science, i've dedicated my life and future to this type of stuff. I would literally go crazy if i didnt have a fish tank in my house and they assume that they can just throw stuff together and it'll be perfect.

Sorry about this just HAD to get it off my chest.

We all have to vent sometimes. It happens. Hope your friend educates herself real quick. I personally don't mind if mistakes are made in our hobby...it happens, and hopefully folks learn from it. It just gets to me when sound advice falls on deaf ears. Best of luck to you as well at school. =)

Mistakes are bound to happen, its part of life. Its when you make mistakes and dont learn from then it gets real bad, and thank you.

And people forget that, even though they are "just fish", they are living creatures and if we are going to keep them we need to do it responsibly. I get really bothered every time I lose a fish and not just because they are expensive.

Good luck with your system. Take your time and do it all right the first time so you dont have lakes on your floor like i did.
