About Yourself: Been doing saltwater FOWLR since 2000 (no experience with corals).
Tank Size: 100 gallons
Advice: Anything in living room needs the wife approval so I would recommend the book "The Inspired Aquarium" by Jeff Senske and Mike Senske. - The Tropical Marine Fish Survival Manual by Gordon kay - Marine Fishes by Scott W. Michael - 500 Ways to be a better saltwater fishkeeper - The Conscientious Marine Aquarist - Aquariums for Dummies MY BOTTOM LINE ADVICE: 0. MOST IMPORTANT: This hobby is expensive. This setup is $2500 with a used tank and used live rock. This setup new would be $4000. Add $400 for dead fish... I lost half the livestock in the first 6 months while the tank is getting stabilized. Annual costs $300 for salt, electric, bulbs, replace broken equipment, frozen food. 2. Maintain the best water quality (get a Reef Octopus BH2000 protein skimmer with external pump to minimize heat. Don't buy the useless AquaC Remora protein skimmer because it's noisy, has ugly pump inside your tank, adds heat to your water, and I've only seen it work with the water as dirty yellow instead of clear water) 4. Butterfly fish (even heniochus so I gave up after the 4th one died due to aggression from emperor angel, coral beauty, singapore angel and yellow tang) are very very fragile so don't waste your money. 5. Use Selcon food additive to prevent HLLE disease.
