Advice: From my experience, make sure you use quality life rock and if you don't mix your own salt water buy it from a reputable source. Avoid large chain fish stores when buying salt water fish at all costs. Get the biggest tank you can get, then save, and get a bigger one before you buy any. I thought a 55 gallon would be enough and I'm already wanting a larger size. Do smaller water changes more frequently. I do a 5 gallon change every other weekend and that seems to be helping the fish out A LOT.

About Yourself: My girlfriend is really big into tanks and for her birthday I got her a 75 gallon that we set up. I got addicted so I purchased a 55 gallon and with my uncle owning his own business, I set it up as a saltwater with his help. So far everything is going good, and I can't wait to upgrade to a larger tank!
