Hi Guys!
Total newbie here. I have a 75 gallon tank. Looking forward to getting some fish and coral in there. I was initially going to go freshwater but my kids begged me for a saltwater tank. So here goes nothing. I’m a little over a month in and my first fish died today after just 3 days :(. I felt so bad. Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

Welcome to Reef2Reef! I'm sorry to hear about your fish - I've been doing this a long time and I still hate it when it happens. You may want to take a look at this R2R article for some tips to help you get started:

Welcome to the community this is a hobby that will teach patience and planning. Recommend looking into threads on various topics here and Bulk Reef Supply videos about tank set up, chemistry, etc on You Tube. I am getting back into the hobby after being out a long time been planning for 6 months...taking my time and not rushing it.

Good luck and start a build thread.
