I wish I found this when I first started but here is my tank. All advise is welcome. Yes, I am looking at bigger tanks.

I bought a bigger tank 32.5 Gal. Just made the arch, added water and sand and now I'm gonna let it do its thing for a couple weeks then I will be moving all my fish, shrimp, frags and cleanup crew into their new home.

Update on the 13.5 that my fish will be moving out of soon. Salinity was at 1.029 so I exchanged 5 gallons at 1.020 to even it out and everything looks good now.

Minor update on the 32.5 gallon my brother dropped a littleneck clam into the tank so I guess we'll see what happens.

The water has cleared up beautifully after I smoothed out the sand a little. I have added Stability, Reef Builder, Fuel, Calcifcation, Zoo Plankton and Phyto Plankton. It is day 3 of adding stability. I have been water testing daily and as of yesterday everything was still zero (its only day 3 for the tank as of today.). I have not done a water test today I will do that later. I also ghost fed yesterday. Please give me and tips or advise to help aid in the smooth setup and water cycle of this tank as I did not do the 13.5 properly and ended up with big spikes at the start because I added fish way way way to soon.

Today I had my LFS test the water and everything is great. I added one of my live rocks last night (My Condy is attached to it. It's okay though cause I honestly can't stand him.) I also added 2 Yellow Tail Damsels.

I've been watching my water quality and it has been great so I went ahead and transfered my fish and coral to the new tank over the past couple days. All the fish and coral have stayed looking happy and healthy.
