Hi Kevin and Nicole! Welcome to TFK. Do you have a tank that you've set up or are you getting ready to? Details, details, we want the details! :)

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

well we have boughten a lot of equiptment to get us started but dont exactly know where to start. We have a 65 gallon tank that we purchased a tropical fish store... the guys there set us up with what we beleive are the essestials? Filters, a sump, a lamp, salt, live sand, etc etc. We know we want clownfish for sure... but dont even know what we can mix with those.. SO MANY QUESTIONS. Ill be on this thing all night!! :)

nothing to help,just wanted to welcome to you both.

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.
