Advice:Be patient, let the tank mature, don't rush to put loads of fish in and just remember the size the fish can grow to and the type of fish it is "reef safe" or not!!!

Advice:Patience, Patience, Patience! DO NOT CUT CORNERS! This will only cost your more money in the long run. You will be better to save a little money and do the job right before it kills or damges your livestock. Pay special attention to your parameters. Dont believe the hype of some companies claiming to eliminate nitrates and such. These are temporary fixes that will create a bigger issue later. Do your homework. The more you research and test within your own tank, the more you will learn about fish, coral, suppliments, parameters, lighting etc the better you will be off.
Quote:Do your research before buying new livestock.
About Yourself:I am a college student that has progressed through many differnent size aquariums and am working my way up to 200+g.I started out with a bio cube and a 2g mini reef tank. I am quickly out growing my current 75g. I am addicted to this hobby and escape to the aquarium stores when ever I get a chance. Happy reefing....
About Yourself:reefing for 10 years, started with a 29 gallon, went through all sizes, sold the rest, one 210 now, its a husband & wife hobby. We both work in collision repair, this is stress relief. Most of the time.
Advice:consistant water changes, test for nitrates, phosphates (buy a phosban reactor!) after algae problem we bought a 24" vertex 2.0 liquifiing reactor, used phosguard for 2 weeks, then rowaphos, problem solved!

About Yourself:been in the hobby since 1992 started with freshwater and a 10gal tank, then moved up to a 55 gal and then 75 gal, I got a 125 and decided that was to large for fresh water so I got the nerve to try saltwater fish and now I will not have anything else...
