Hey everyone!

I am a complete newb when it comes to salt tanks. I have had fresh water tanks for years, but when my local fish shop converted to an all saltwater store I decided it was time to make the jump.

Last evening I cleaned out my 50 gallon tank, washed everything up, filled the tank with water conditioner and salt, and then added my sand and a nice piece of live rock.

I am going to let the tank cycle for next couple days and then go to the store and pick a few starter fish.

Any smart ideas on what fish make good starters?

Can't wait to become a part of the community!

Very best,

Noah B.

Welcome to the site!
Check out the articles on how to cycle a tank under my sig. I would post any further questions in the SW sections, as all the gurus don't always visit this section.
