Advice: Research, research, research..... then experiment, experiment, experiment! Ask for help, no question is too simple! Start out with way too much live rock and way to little fish if you're starting a reef tank! Ensure to keep whatever your doing constant, and when you decide to try something new do it gradually and monitor your animals behaviour.
