First of all welcome to the forum

My advice...take it slow , do not impulse buy fish and ask any questions you are unsure of the answer to. Many people on here have a lot of experience with the whole spectrum of fish keeping, so someone will know your answer or offer advice.

Best of luck in your fish keeping

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

something seeded for you next filter.

Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
