New couple to salt water....

Hi there our names are Bianca and Lee... we are new to the saltwater world of fish. been doin well with fresh water for the past 4 yrs but now turne dour tanks over to marine tanks. we have a 75 gallon tank with damsels, anenomes, hammer somethings, fox face, sea urchin and a wrasse. we were warned about our wrassse but ive been keeping up with him pretty good where he hasnt bothered the coral nor snails or crabs. we would like a red lobster but i thinnk that may be pushin it with the wrasse.
also we have a 20 gallon tank with 2 seahorses. we ha a manarin in there ( the most beautiful one ive ever seen) but he didnt make it. i still havent figured out why..
anyways. we are new and could use some guidance. from fish store to fish store everyone has a different opinion on anything we question so its hard to find out what to follow. we have high hopes we will find our answers here

Welcome to FishForum!

Another SW'er. Nice. Your Mandarin most likely died from lack of copepod's (little white bugs that are a sign of a mature tank). Most will only eat pods. And if not, they starve to death.
