Looking for some advice,critique, suggestions..pls I recently got into this hobby about 2wks ago. That is when i initially setup my saltwater tank. Currently my salinity is sitting at around 1.025-1.026 I purchased a domino damsel yesterday he seems happy. My concerns is what is yet to come. All this is very unknown for me at the moment. I look forward into making this tank a beautiful reef tank. With a couple of fish and some inverts. Just curious about the items i purchased from petco if they will work or should i get something different also if I am missing anything in my set up. Im currently feeding my damsel x3 times a day tropical marine fish flakes is that sufficient or to much? I will be buying some more live rock next week to build up the right side of tank. I was looking of getting at least 30lbs total of the rock. Also what do you guys suggest in getting one of those siphon hoses to clean the sand and rock with? Wont the sand get sucked up into the hose....??and out of the tank??
