Hey guys. I'm making this thread mostly to get help, suggestions, and recommendations. Not so much to show off the tank. Hopefully this is the right place for that. I plan to stay on this thread long term as a thread related to this particular tank and all the questions I'll have at various points about various things along the way at all different stages. I've already ordered the lights, I have the tank...I have an RO machine already just for my freshwater. I do have experience breeding freshwater shrimp and indeed snails as well. So it's not like I have no idea what's going on, but at the same time I get that saltwater is a whole different ball game. My intentions for the future of the tank is to have a couple clownfish and a shrimp or two, but right now I'm a ways from having that. Also I want to breed clownfish but apparently I'm a good bit further from doing that. I am a breeder first and foremost, as a hobby and maybe a few extra bucks selling critters sometime down the line. That said I want the tank to look somewhat decent. I also want the tank to work though, so ultimately I'll sacrifice looks if it means the tank will work better. This endeavor is pretty intensive of basically everything. Time, money, mental resources, and effort. I would greatly appreciate any and all help you guys are willing to give me. Forgive me if I am brutally honest at times...don't get the idea that I'm not being friendly. I just like to get down to brass tacks...and with this, there isn't a lot of room for small talk. There's plenty of real, valuable information to be learned at this time. Anyways thanks for reading and writing. I'll be posting questions as they come to me on here and of course looking for the responses.
