I don’t have an updated picture of my set up, but I’ve done more with it since this photo was taken. I have been researching nonstop for the past three weeks on BRS tv’s YouTube channel and I’ve learned so much! I’m VERY new to the hobby. So far I have a crab-only tank. I know your “clean-up crew” is supposed to go last, but my boyfriend accidentally brought hermit crabs home from the beach while he was on a work trip. He always brings me shells as souvenirs when he has a job near the beach, and this is the first time he’s ever accidentally brought something home that was alive. We felt SO bad, so we decided that we would give them the best home possible and immediately put them in QT until our tank set-up cycled. This photo is our 55 gallon. That’s how my saltwater aquarium journey started. How about you?

We have added more live rock since this photo was taken. Can’t wait to see where our saltwater journey takes us years down the road.
