About Yourself: I went with a buddy to look at a fish tank some guy was selling dirt cheap on craigslist. It was the wrong color for my buddy, but he told me it was such a bargain that I should buy it. Some bargain....I can't begin to start adding up the $$$ I've spent since buying this tank.

Corals/Plants: 2 rose bubble tip anemones, 1 kenya tree coral, 1 cabbage leather coral

Advice: Start Slow... Read, Research, and Research again! Find a reliable source. Try not to reley to much on fish stores because (most, not all) only care about making money and will sell you things you don't need and over price for saltwater tank equipment. Ask lots of questions on this site. Please take your time! I have spent a lot of money on fish and half of them died because I did not let my tank cycle and mature properly (LACK OF KNOWLEDGE and PATIENCE.) Don't get discouraged and stay with it. This hobby can be very demanding; however, once you develop a system, it will get easier.
