Hey everyone

Hey guys my name is Rick I'm from connecticut. I've been slowly acquiring everything I need to do a SW tank, I'm just nervous about taking the plunge into fillin this thing up, here is what I have so far a 46g bow front tank, a remora protein skimmer with the maxi jet 1200, an eheim classic canister filter, and a current light fixture with twin compact flor lights and three led moon lights, I also bought a rodi unit used from a guy at work, I have a few other odds and ends also, and in the next few weeks and paychecks I'm hoping to put together the rest of the stuff I need, to get started. Hoping to get some knowledge, I've read some books so I have a base, just hoping everyone can help me go from empty tank to a nice tank stock with fish and eventually corals

Nice I'm interested in checking ur posts out. I wanted to do a small SW like that but everyone told me to go bigger because I'm new to SW and more water would give me a little more chance to save the tank from rookie mistakes which I'm sure I will be making,
