Very GREEN sw enthusiast
Hello to all! I really need this forum's help, I can't wait to learn all sorts of stuff here! I bought a 55 gallon sw aquarium on cragslist this August. It was obvious it hadn't been tended to in a long time. There was this little blue tang in there that had been through a lot. So we drained most of the water and drove it home, little blue fish in tow. And we put new water in it and the fish survived! I have been stunned at how little I had to do to get this aquarium up and running, and now a few months later it seems to be doing well. I haven't had any level problems, I will get around to posting some in my Tank log. I've got 2 skunk shrimp that are VERY pregnant, a hawkfish that for sure will eat the babies once they are born, two firefish, two little clowns, and a small yellow tang. I'd like to transition to a reef tank this year, and am going to need some serious help to do it. Right now it is just a FOWLR. I bought a Euro Reef RS-80 protein skimmer, and need to build a sump for it. That's been a huge research project for me for quite some time, but I haven't made any steps towards putting it in. I just don't know where to start. There's all sorts of stuff living in our liverock, I hear than means it's healthy, but I'd still like to know what it all is. Anyway, the more I read in this forum, the more overwhelmed I become. So lookout fishforum! A Lot of newbie questions are on their way!!!
