Welcome to the forum Tommy. I've searched your other posts and didn't find any details on your setup. I'd suggest starting a build thread in the "Pictures and Videos" forum. We can help guide you along from day 1 until you have a successful system in place.

Also, read some of those build threads because you will learn a lot!

yeah that is what ive gathered from researching this thread. that is why ive gotten a quarantine tank before adding any fishes it also is the reason why i havent added any fish yet. my corals have been going for 2 months and look pretty healthy. water quality is always good(ph, nitrates, nitrates, ammonia, etc. i wanted a main attraction like a lionfish but did not want it dying instantly in my tank or bringing in some sort of parasite or disease. lol

alright now to read that thread... thank you guys!!!
