I think it is always good to keep up a build log and progress. That way others can also chime in on what how they think it is going. Don't forget, everyone likes pictures!

Hi,

This is an update from a SW rookie listening to all the valuable info on this site and thought it 'may' be useful to starters. I started my tank (20 g) two weeks ago with LR and live sand and introduced my raw shrimp one week ago, temp us holding at 25. Following advice my amm is at 0.25 and should slowly be rising (testing every day???) I will be buying some more small rock this weekend and rearranging the scape. At this moment I plan 2 orange clowns a goby and cuc.

Pictures of start up to follow....!

That is beautiful! I am curious, how do you get the blue look to your water?
