Advice: Learn as much as you can and proceed in small steps.My tank is a constant work in progress , starting out with quality live sand and live rock , a must for pristine water conditions, if fish are to be kept , u.v. sterilizers are a must for the more sensitive fish, though not a complete cure to all disease it has been essential in control. water movement needs to be fairly swift, and feeding kept to every other day .Don't rush your system , give it time to adjust to new additions.The most expensive equipment is not always the best equipment.
