hello total newbee

hey hows it going,
just bought a marine 80 litre reef orca nano tank.

im a total novice at fish keeping, havent done anything like this before so
any tips or hints would be great.

ive had it 3 weeks now, added live coral sand, live rock and some reef rock.
i also added some snails and hermit crabs.
all seems to be going well but any advice would be much appreciated.

is there a ten step thing that will tell me everything i need to know?
how frequent do i change the water, feed the fish etc.
clean filters, do i add an air pump thingy?

hello and welcome.
have you tried to post your question in the saltwater section,
you may get the answers you need there.
good luck.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
