Thank you ;)
 
I'd like to take a moment to thank Pasfur, Wake and everybody else who assisted me in setting up my tank. After 3+ months it appears to be completely healthy and stable. Coralline algae is exploding all over the place on a daily basis, micro life forms are blooming, all my fish that make it to the main tank are doing excellent, and 4 of my 5 corals are thriving and in two cases already spreading (green star polyps and mushrooms - the 5th coral (long polyp leather) was doing great until yesterday but hasn't opened for 2 days). I even survived a nudibranch episode and have a large zoa colony that is currently 100% open.

My scarlet cleaner molted (I assume this is also a good sign on water quality) and my two blue green chromis and my two clowns appear to be schooling. I am down to testing calcium and hardness once a week and everything else every other week. The only maintenance I have is emptying the skimmer every week, topping off with RODI, and doing very minor water changes every 2 to 3 weeks. Much easier to maintain than my freshwater angelfish and discus.

This really is a great site and I would suggest that any person new to marine aquariums take the time to research and to listen to the the people on this site who are here to help. Oh... and have patience!

Now its time to start the planning stage of the large reef I am going to do. Can't wait to sell this house and move so I can set up a 180 (or larger as Pasfur is now suggesting). :)

Congrats on the success. I've been slowly reading the sw section up here. I feel that I may venture to a sw tank one of these days. Even if it's a 29g bio cube. I have already learned a lot about sw from this site and Pasfur and other. I don't know how Pasfur does it. That's one patient dude there. Especially when someone new comes along with a host of noob problems and mistakes. Ditto on what you said about this forum. Maybe I'll be asking noob questions about sw soon as well.

+1 on the success

+2 on the patience of PasFur....

SW is in the plans once I buy a house...

Well since the thread has already been started, thanks Pasfur for taking the time out of your day to help us SW newbs. I surely would have failed miserably during my moments of panic had it not for you being there to keep me calm! And now look, my 29G is just a month old and Im already getting the parts in order for a 75G. If it werent for this forum and people like you I would probably be out $1200. Thankfully everything is coming along nicely. Keep up the good work man!

Pasfur is awesome but it goes beyond just Pasfur. 1F2F, Wake, Dawn and the others all do a great job helping people out.

BTW the one coral I was worried about is open again. ;)

So heart warming to see someone else who did so well. Great to read your post, I discovered this site through en entirely different discussion board(horse forum), and I am sooo excited to be starting my first tank. Hope to see some pictures and hear more of your adventures(and I'll be sitting in the back taking notes).
Cheers!
