Hello everyone, I am pretty much brand new to the hobby. Here is my thread from when I first got my tank started up. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/new-to-the-hobby.273155/ So, here's my story... My dad was diagnosed with cancer about 2 years ago. We got this 29 gallon Biocube for him for Christmas two years ago. He's always loved saltwater aquariums, and we figured we would give him the opportunity to have one. He did the research and got his tank up and running. He had a few corals, fish, and a clean up crew. The tank was doing great. Well, his cancer progressed, and the tank got put on the backburner of course. Every time I'd go to my parent's house, I'd try to clean it up a bit and feed the fish. Unfortunately my dad lost his battle with cancer about 5 months ago. My mom just couldn't take care of the tank, and it took a turn for the worst. I decided to take the tank, clean it up, and start it from scratch. This has kind of been a build in memory of my father, and I've enjoyed every second of it. The start up went smooth, the nitrogen cycle was pretty quick and low key, and everything in the tank is doing fantastic so far. As of right now I have 25 pounds of live rock, a firefish, 2 percula clowns, 2 emerald crabs, 5 snails (2 astrea and 3 margarita), a galaxea coral frag, a green star polyp frag, and a yellow polyp frag. I think I'm just about done with livestock for now, as the tank seems happy, and all the levels are spot on. I don't want to overstock. I am running the stock return pump, protein skimmer, heater, and a bag of activated carbon in the 2nd bay. Anyways, figured I'd start a build thread, as I'm sure I'll have questions as the tank progresses! Thank you to everyone who has helped me out already.
