Hi :) New to Saltwater

Hi
I just started up my first salt water aquarium in the last 2 months and everything has been going pretty smoothly, a few ups and downs which is im sure expected. I currently have a 30 gallon tank with 2 ocellaris clowns, 2 clarki clowns, yellow tang, orange spotted gobby, 1 peppermint shrimp and a couple snails and hermit crabs

I also have several corals including hammer, frogspawn, and rock of zoos
3 bubble tipped anemones (2 green and one beautiful red with green base) of course for the clowns

I always look at this forum for advice so i finally decided to join

I also have this white stuff growing on my live rock just started about a week ago, all levels are good so maybe just need some more bottom feeders or something
Ill try posting a pic

Ok well its a small yellow tang and it is currently doing fine, smaller tanks stunt the growth and if he reaches a large enough size i will remove him and get him into a bigger tank
I asked for advice on the rock growth

Sorry... I'm not experienced enough to say anything it's just the one thing I knew in your topic that I considered...wrong?

to AA! We hope ya enjoy

I'd post this in the saltwater section. I don't have an answer on what it is other than maybe some type of algae. Almost looks like sand rallying on it.

Welcome!! There right about the tang. Not a good idea. The white stuff on the rocks I'd need to see a picture, does it come off if you rub it with your finger? Is it fuzzy?

Hi! I'm new to reefing too! Got a 30 gal nano, getting my live rock and sand this weekend. Corraline algae can be white, if your parameters are good then I say it's a good thing. Good luck and post pics of your tank!
