Wink Hello! New to the hobby & hooked!

Hi, I love my little ocean. Nature fascinates me! Bought an already 'established' tank from someone so I already have a lot going on. Lots of inverts, couple damsels and brown button polyps. And quite a few brisstle worms which is why I added my awesome arrow crab. I have lots of questions, I have lots to learn but I feel lm doing well so far. Ammonia a nitrites 0 and nitrates dropping fast. Its only been a week and everything seems to be goimg great, got water ready for my first water change waiting. Advice on anything is greatly appreciated. Ive picked the brains of all my lfs but its always good to get as much info as possible.
