Quote: What we do in life, echoes in eternity.
About Yourself: Bit by the saltwater bug!
Fish Kept: Mated Pair of Snowflake Clown Fish, Yellow Tang, Royal Gramma, Flame Angel and a Rose Bubble Tip Anemone.
Corals/Plants: Various SPS, LPS, and Soft Corals.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: The bigger and longer the tank the better. Good water flow and a opened aquascape is a must in order to eliminate dead spots. A deep sand bed (minimum 4"), good quality live rock, powerfull skimmer, and a properly set up refugium with Macro Algae can help keep nitrates at 0 PPM, and water changes to a minimum. Read all marine keeping books, especially "The Reef Aquarium" Vol 1, 2, and 3. Last but not least, Dont shy away from this hobby on the first signs of trouble. Marine aquarium keeping gets easier and easier as the tank matures. If trouble arises, internet forums can be of great help when questions need answering.
