No problem! A lot of people give me negative comments, or say that stuff is not the way to go. But I swear by that stuff! some marine biologist was doing something right when they bottled that stuff!!!! Lol I have never had a tank "crash" yet! I always use a couple or 3 bottles of smart start, one at the beginning of setting up the tank, and half ones here and there. I am really happy it worked for you! Do you have pics yet?

Never mind! Duh! Already seen them! Lol but once again, take time building up your live rock. And you should save some money, buy two or three pieces of dry rock, to for the foundation for your aqua scape. I always like going to my LFS and picking only pieces that catch my eyes, ones with a lot of odd shapes, caves, and places for my little guys to hide. I don't like just grabbing a bunch at once, having to settle for what is just there. and it gives you something to always keep an eye out when you are at your LFS! Once again, always feel free to ask any questions on here or through pm.

I like the shell on the hermit crab! Second, I'd move the rocks over, I always keep some room between the rocks and my glass, just so my magnet cleaner can fit, so I don't have to worry about build up. Third, I love my yellow tail damsels! A lot of people dislike them: saying they are terrors, and only good for cycling tanks, which is mean. I think they add a lot of personality to tanks! and If fed the right food, they have such an amazing blue color!!!!

Skimmers are one of the pieces of equipment that you get what you pay for so don't waste your money on a cheap one
