Hello Everyone

Iím new here so I just want to introduce myself and describe what I have. Iím Felix from San Antonio Texas and I have a 55 gallon saltwater tank that I have had fish in for almost three years. The fish have been doing great but really they were just there, not much to look at. Iíve decided to kick it up a notch and add some coral so really Iím a newbee at this. Iíve made some mistakes along the way but nothing too expensive yet. I had the wrong substrate (pebbles) and I may have swapped it out with not really the best, I have a combo of sand and crushed coral. Iím thinking I should have gone with only sand. I had some Texas holey rock, which is great for FW fish; I swapped that out with a combo of Oystercrete and live Fiji. The new substrate has been in there about 3 months now. Today I am changing my stand from a small homemade stand to a 36 in steel stand. I may add some more sand if the local coral shop thinks that I should. So this is long enough for an intro but I have lots of questions that Iíll be posting later.

Be careful putting LR into an established aquarium. That could be a recipe for a ammonia spike.

When you buy tanks, just to sell them for more money then use that extra cash for your own fish.....You have a problem!
