Advice: Patience! I don't have very much so i've had to learn from my mistakes. I watch LA Fishguy on youtube and read alot. Don't believe everything you read. What might not work for someone else might work for you. If you can afford it take some risks. Don't be afraid of ick. Use garlic and feed well. It will go away. Alot of flow will solve alot of algae problems and most of the time they will run their course... so don't freak out!

About Yourself: I have been doing this for almost two years, im on my second tank because I started with a nano. I have had almost every problem happen to my tank from electrical failiure which wiped out everything to whitespot that wiped everything a year later. im in the process of building up my fish slowly again.
Fish Kept: Yellow Tang, Mandrin, Maroon Clown, Copper banded butterfly, Cleaner wrasse
Corals/Plants: Too many to name but a good mixture of stoney and soft
Tank Size: 45 gallons
Advice: Cleaner shrimps and wrasse are important for the health of the fish. Dont over do hermit crabs unless you have no coral because they will move it and wreck it, 6 small ones are fine for a tank as small as mine. Take time placing fish in the tank
