New to the forums with my first aquarium. 125g FOWLR

Hey guys, I've already made a couple posts but I figured I'd formally introduce myself. I've wanted a saltwater aquarium for years and just never got around to it and a couple weeks ago I just randomly decided to get one. I purchased a 125g with wet/dry pump, protein skimmer, chiller, heater, etc. it also came with 80-100lbs of live rock 100-150lbs of live sand, a clownfish, a small blue damsel, and a pretty big yellow tail damsel. When i transferred the tank i kept most of the water so i wouldnt have to cycle the tank. it's been about 2 weeks, i've done a few water changes to keep the nitrates down now the water is under control and all the fish seem fine.

now its time to purchase fish

i'm looking forward to being a member here for a long time.

Welcome to AA!

On to the technical stuff...

You got bio-balls in that wet/dry? Want your nitrates lower? We gotta get rid of the bio-balls and replace with rock rubble.
