Advice: Be Patient and do not cut short when buying equipment. Make sure you have plenty of filtration and live rock. Making your own rock at home saves a lot of money and aggravation in trying to keep algae down. I have also had more luck keeping my temp. at around 82 degrees F. My corals get larger and also multiply much faster at this temperature.
