New here

Hey, I am a new guy here, and I joined to get answers from questions that I can not really ask anyone else. So, if you can help on any of them, I would deeply appreciate it.

Thanks, I don't have anyone that has a saltwater tank that i can talk to, so this is going to be unimaginably helpful.

It was a twenty gal long, started out fowlr, just to get the feel of things...then slowly added some mushrooms. Only problem I had was bad saltwater from the LFS. For a long time I was buying gallon jugs and lugging them up stairs! Now I have a RO/DI unit that I love!! Just upgraded to a 40 gallon breeder and added a finger leather coral along with the mushrooms. Go slow and take your time, easier to do it right the first time and enjoy it. Get your test kits, an absolute must.

And this site is awesome! If I have a question it has more than likely been asked already. I spend way to much time on here! Addicted to AA!! Lol
