Hi guys! I'm from Denmark, and I just set up my first tank, but it's very budget, and I'm using DIY everywhere I can!

It's only been running for 3 weeks now, but I think (hope) it's going well.

I only have a pH test kit, until I get my birthday money in a week.

It seems like there was some kind of coral on the live rock, I posted a pic of when the lights just turned on, and 30 min later Definitely something living

Welcome! It could be a tunicate or possibly a zoa.

That tank look REALLY good, and a lot of fun. Keep going slowly. “Read” up first, then implement your plan.
Oh I've been reading and watching videos for years before starting my own, I've had freshwater for 5 years, but i know you can't compare
