Hello Hobbyist I am New!

Hello I just want to start off by saying my name is Timothy Kopp i am new to the forum and I am located in Louisville,KY. I have always took a major interest in the marine world. Especially the beauty of a reef. I had done little research and built a 10 gallon tank with no experience kinda as a trial and error sorta thing and completely failed due to lack if knowledge. But failure is not a option. So i decided to dig a little deeper into my research and found this awesome forum. Hopefully you guys can guide me into the right direction. Currently i am working on a 30 gallon then will slowly move up in size due to the major expense. Right now in my tank i have approximately 15-20 LR a Marineland MaxiJet 400 (500gph) about 20 pounds of LS. Digital Thermometer currently reading 76.2F and a MarineLand 55g Filtration system please share your thoughts on what i might add to make my experience wprth while. Right now im a week into this tank trying to make sure i add any and all equipment possible before my cycle is over. Thank you for reading
