Hey everyone - it's a super exciting day for me. I just clicked the "buy now" button on a brand new Fusion Pro 2 | 50 AIO Lagoon Aquarium w∕ APS Stand - Black from Innovative Marine! I have been dreaming of a saltwater tank for many years and have just been to scared to pull the trigger ... well, that all changed today and I couldn't be happier. I owned a Freshwater tank about 15 years ago but the tank failed and I never got back into it. I've always missed it and have always seemed to have an excuse why I can't get a new tank but in today's world it's time to have fun and ENJOY!

Here is where I am still a bit worried ... the IM tank I purchased above is all I've purchased lol. SO I NEED YOU HELP IF WILLING ...
The tank comes will all sorts of features and is listed as an AIO however I know I will need lighting and a heater for sure. I'm wanting to so a small reef with my saltwater fish and to be honest I really don't know what I'm doing but I'm really excited to learn. I've read all sorts of reviews and discussions on here that this was a great tank especially for beginning reefers but I'm pretty much at the start of this new adventure.

Anyway, thanks for welcoming me into the tank and I can't wait for this underwater world to begin. Beez

Welcome! Most of what you will need is going to be driven by what you want to put in the tank. What fish are you planning to put in the tank, any coral?

Yes, I would like coral but I have not decided on fish - so many questions ...

Welcome! Glad you joined. Sounds like you are well on your way!! CONGRATS!

Have you considered starting your build thread? I found its a great place to document my tank's evolution for myself. I started tank first then joined, so I'm still finding myself going back collecting pictures & updating historically as well as current state. Once you create your first post in your thread and link it to your account, they will give you build badge (look left, under my ID)

This is a good reference book type online article I still review:
