New to the saltwater hobby. Live in the Eugene, Oregon area. Former scuba diver, which really triggered my fascination with marine life. I’ve been researching on this forum for a while now and have finally decided to sign up and post:)

I say new, but tried this several years back And wasn’t prepared to research the needs and demands of maintaining a healthy tank. Paid attention to ammonia, nitrates and nitrites and that was about it. Ended up with a hairy green tank and aborted.

This time, I’ve spent the last year researching and preparing. I finally have my tank set up and am preparing for “The Package” from Tampa Bay Saltwater.

My build so far:

Tank: Wat180.5

Lighting: 3x Hydra 32HD

Filter Sock: Waterbox

Protein Skimmer: Reef Octopus Regal 200SSS
