Hey all, after going to work and seeing a 500+G tank for the last 6 years finally made me jump into the fun.

Have a 125G tank and had professional help(guy who set up and cares for tank at work) setting up and making sure everything is properly running so far.

Added 2 orange storm clowns first followed by a small foxface, rose anemometer, small hammer coral and 2 frag Zoas and just added a Midas Blenny and Cardinal.

Everything seems to be thriving and it definitely brings the blood pressure back down after a stressful day at work.

Very, very beautiful— and welcome to R2R!

Will you be placing anything black behind the tank— like the plain backgrounds they sell by-the-foot at an LFS, or will leave the tank see-through? So people would say a black background will make your fish and corals ‘pop’ more— but it’s personal preference. Keep up the good work; put a few weeks in between adding each fish. :)
