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!!!

Welcome to the forum :) There's loads of posts in the salty threads which you've probably been reading by now, and loads of advice for people who need it. Good luck with the sump, and keep us posted on how it's all coming along.
