My tank is nearing a month old
Cycle has gone well
Live rock added first days. 3 Chromis added at 2 weeks in. Much life from live rock. Only missing critter is a Linkia Star that was found and have not seen for a week. Suspect crab got it as it was only 10mm dia.

Ammonia now less than .2ppm
Nitrate 5ppm
Nitrite 0ppm
PH 8

Started with Aquaforest sea salt

I think I lost my biggest snail. Found it upside down yesterday. Turned it right side up and it's not moved since. Not sure if it's a cone or a cowrie. If cone then possibly starved due to lack of food?

On a brighter note my Bald shrimp had it's babies last night. 1000s of tiny shrimp. Will be interesting to see how many if any survive

Also discovered what I think is a Ribbon worm under a rock. Deinitely not a bristle worm. Was smooth looking and not hairy at all. Will endeavor to photograph.

Always a little jealous of seeing the tanks down under. You guys get some amazing stuff! I love seeing the large colonies and basically no one has frags.
It depends on the LFS whether they stock rock or corals. Lucky for me I found my store does both.
There are very kind to me yesterday and gifted me a leather for being a valued customer.
