Hello all, I'm a fish tank enthusiast but am new to salt water. I have just turned my 55g tank into a salt water tank. I would like to do a coral tank. Yesterday I filled the tank with 30lbs of dry sand and 20lbs of live sand, 15lbs of live rock, and salt water. I plan on adding 20 more lbs of live rock this weekend and a couple sails and sand shifters. i will provide some picture of my setup soon. i'm running no sump, just two hang on filters that were on my freshwater setup, a decent size protein skimmer, one large heater, and two power heads. If you have any pointers, as i am new, im all ears. I look forward to trading ideas and being a member of this community. Thanks
