It’s been nice to read through this and see you learning to slow down and take it easy. Nothing here goes fast or simple. Continue down this out and you will see great success.
Have you tried putting together an image of what you want on PowerPoint. You can play around with images of various rocks and corals to see how your potential vision would work.
I do that with all my tanks and it helps to show where I may be going wrong or what will work. It also helps to visualize how densely stocked a tank is.
On paper 5 four inch fish isn’t a lot until you see them all packed in a tank.

At the point I am at now, it’s a sprint because I want to be able to actually start the thing but when I have it all cycled and the starter fish and coral it’s gonna slow down

That’s rushing... don’t rush.

I almost rushed my tank, by not getting an RO/DI system. I’m so glad I have it now, because I now it’s better for my fish and that I will be able to grow corals, without the Rick of dissolved metals.

Please tell me you’re going to cycle with bottled bacteria/live rock? Using a “starter fish” is cruel and inhumane.

Does anyone know where the cheapest place to get marcosrocks is?
Have you checked your LFS? Usually getting live rocks online, is very expensive.

I’m gonna use biospira and seeded rock. I might get a starter crab or snail to have something to watch so I don’t get bored and impulse buy a fish becsuse it’s on sale
