Hello all Where new to marine and got a bit a head and bought a tank so I’m looking to learn what I have so I know where to start

so the tank had been set up and moved and set back up same day so it’s cycled but I’m expecting a spike

I have a lion fish a regul tan chocolate clown
Valentine puffer fox fish and a spiny urchin
A fair bit of live rock that look like things are starting to grow
And a few corals
I’d like some help to Id if you would

Hello, welcome to R2R

Looks like you have a rock flower anemone (second to last picture), Xenia’s (third photo left), green polys (first photo middle) , plating monti (first photo right), some type of zoa (first photo left), a leather (the last picture) some type of acan (third photo right) all I can ID. Not sure in the second picture, could be some type of star polyp or Goniphora. The fourth picture looks like some type of fuana growing on the rocks. Hope this helps!

I’d checkout YouTube a popular channel I watch when I have issues or want to learn a lot about saltwater tanks is BRS, these guys are really good reefers with a lot of knowledge. I recommend watching the 52 weeks of reefing video series it will give you a lot of knowledge on certain processes and things to know.
