Newbie from Far North Illinois

Hey everyone I'm new to the marine world. My name is Carl and I currently have a 46 gallon bowfront with an Eheim Ecco model 2236 a coralifd super skimmer. I have the eheim pre filter base with sponge and a eheim surface extractor. I currently have approx. 48 lbs of live rock about 35 lbs live sand and 2 cinnomon clowns (nemo and bozo wife named them). I have which I hope isn't too under powered a aqueon t5 dual lamp with 39w 50/50 actinic and a 10,000k reef sun bulbs. I also have 2 500 gph circulation pumps in the back corners blowing into the backs of the rock with a zoo med 220 auto turn pump on top. I will take pics in the morning and post. Now I know I will probably get some bad responses on this but I was assured to have no problem with keeping these 2 fish and if it all died he'd replace so why not? My tank has been cycling for just over 50 hrs. I used 15 gals seeded 30 reg ro. My test have been dead perfect salinity at 1.023 ph at 8.2 0 ammonia <.25 nitrites 78.2-78.8 F calcium 400ppm carbonate 12*dKH and phosphate at <.25. So things are going well so far staying patient!! Well that's my introduction and it's nice to meet you all. Carl
