Quote: Change your water
About Yourself: I own a computer network company. which provides a lot of stress which I needed a hobby so I chose this one. I have a degree in Chemistry and Biology which helps out understanding the chemistry of the tank.

Advice: Since this is my first tank I can tell you I have done a lot of research. If you purchase the Red Sea Max make sure to get a second hood. The hood light ballast went out on me and it is a special order item for about 300.00 which is nice to have on hand. I do 5 gallon water changes every Friday. I feed a combination of live and flake food every other day and do not do any supplements other than what comes in the water I keep.
