Corals/Plants: Leathers, rics, zoos, star poyps, mushrooms, LPS, and SPS corals. I like to have a well rounded healthy coral and fish aquarium full of colors and various life forms.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Youll have to spend money in this hobby. I highly recommend a Reefkeeper or Aquacontroller this was my BEST INVESTMENT to manage my temp and lighting. Many DIYs on the internet. For ex. I made a top off system for less than $20 and it works great. Rock, corals, and lighting are the most expensive, buy a good oversized skimmer, and use ONLY RO/DI water
