crushed coral seems to trap detritus and debris causing un-wanted excess nutrients. where is your live rock? what are you water parameters? what are "starter fish?" what are you using for filtration? whats the flow like in the tank? what kind of light? what kind of tank are you planning? what other details?

welcome to the forum.

look forward to more photos. :)

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.

I can tell just from looking at the picture that we have a lot to discuss before you make this leap. It looks like you are using an Emperor as your primary filter, which is the exact opposite of what you should be considering in a marine system.

Lets talk and prevent some mistakes up front. What type of livestock are you looking to keep long term?

Also if you are looking to get corals you need to get better light then NO(normal output). That's what it looks like you have over your tank.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
