NoahLikesFish I would take your time and do a little more research. Seems like you’re still trying to grasp the concept of corals and reefs. No reason to rush and buy a bunch of LR and corals just to watch everything die in a glass box. Sounds like you’re going to give it a go no matter what comments you get on this thread.

I would get your tank and lights set up, order some LR, order sand, and get you filtration going. Cycle your tank. Do your water changes to get the tank off to a good start then add just a few hermits and snails. Enjoy your tank with these hermits and snails for a little while. By this time you would have obtained more knowledge through your research and probably ready for GSP Or a other easy hardy coral. Slow is always better.
I've never done freshwater but I have seen a lot cleaner FW tanks. You can’t let your Reef tank get this dirty or many bad things will happen. Have fun GoodLuck !
