Hi all, I finally gave into my son's desire for a tank. I'll probably be around here a lot.

So far...
Rock - 30lbs dead, 30lbs live
Tank - 75g, running three weeks
Water - started with tap, mistake i know, replaced 20g so far with ro/di
Added - bottle of bacteria 3wks ago, just started adding b-ionic calcium
Equipment - 2 powerheads, remora skimmer, t5 2 bulb light, ehiem cannister which i hear i don't need, heater
Livestock - yes already, 3 mexican turbo snails, 8 blue legged crabs, 2 silver mono, 1 coral goby, 1 starfish, 2 ninja star snails, 1 bishop cap urchant who did not survive.

Went through a diatom and algie explosion a week and a half ago. Tank is clear again.

Wish me luck!

Welcome to Aquarium Advice!

Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

Good Luck with your tank. I'm sort of a beginner too so I cant wait to see how your tank turns out. I always wanted a saltwater tank. The Fish are amazing! Well, Have Fun!
