Hi all


Recommended Posts


I am new to salt water and site. I am setting up my 1st. salt tank. Tons to learn but I feel ready to give it a try!

150 gl. 45 sump, I have T5 fixtures but strange enough it has 27in bulbs. I have not found any were to get replacements yet. I may need to replace soon.


I have enjoyed reading treads but I am sure question will be coming soon.

Wow thanks for the kind offer. I would love some of both. It seems it is time to add more flow. I can't wait for the weather to clear so I can get out. I am thinking 2 Koralia #3. Any thoughts on if thats enough flow for a mixed reef.

My small clean up crew is gonna need help. I am starting to get what looks like "Phormidium" I have pulled and cleaned a few rocks.

20 sm asst crabs

2 cleanner shrimp

1 bl spotted goby

1 bk spine urchin


Not sure when and what to add next.
