    hello everyone
    Just saying hello to everyone here, i am new to the world of tropical salt water tanks and i am sure i will soon have tons of silly questions for u all.

    To make this short and sweet this is my new work in progress in new house i am building.

    Tell me all that u think is appropriate to make it better.

    Two lights used and actually just installed are Orpheks V4 consoles.
    Tank is 243 gallons, drop off tank.

    Beautiful setup! I would add some more plate rock off the center column for horizontal surface area to add corals.

    Me and few others lift this monster up from floor to that pedestal. Tell you it is heavy. Nice to see it coming alive.

    So it is about that time to start adding life to my tank, please if you have any suggestions what to introduce first would be of great help... tank has been cycled, all looks good, passing the ugly stage now, no increased parameters anymore... been like that for 2 weeks now.

    Now i would love to start adding things, corals, fish, clean up crew but the order in which to do it properly would be nice to know.

    My daughter wants some clown fish so i might get a pair of false clownfish, tank bread.
    and with that would love to start on some corals, pls if you could let me know which ones you recommend would be great.

    Thx

    start off with clownfish (for your daughter's sake & love ...) and then slowly add a starter coral. Slow and Patience is the Word to this hobby! Have fun!!
