Welcome! What light did you go with on the tank?
It is a Hipargero. I got it off Amazon after researching it like crazy . Its affordable and its been amazing so far! My corals are doing great. It seems to have really good reviews so I figured why not give it a chance. It only cost me $65 so if it ends up being crap atleast I didn’t spend a fortune on it lol !

Got any wish list corals on your mind already yet? lol
My next purchase ( probably this weekend) lol will be a rainbow bubble tip anemone. I want to get a clown pair in here. After that prob some more rock flower anemones. I want a ricordea in here as well. Honestly everytime I go to the store I just come home with something new that I thought was pretty but I do want to say away from stony corals . I put this monti cap in here and that might just be it for anything stony.

I ordered some macroalgae and local ricordia from someone up in the Ellenton area. Everything was top notch. Those ricordias are growing beautifully and the coloration has been great. www.live-plants.com
You've got a great start!
