Hi guys are there any tips you can give me about good coral keeping? Are there any hard bits or is it all quite simple overall?

I'm wanting to get a marine set up soon and I'm wanting to know the basics so I can have some knowledge to get off to a flying (or should I say swimming) start!

Thanks in advance

If you are planning a reef tank what size are you considering? Yes It can be a challenge If you do not take the correct steps and plan ahead. Basics are cured live rock, protein skimmer, sump ,heater, circulation (power heads) sand and good lighting. What type of corals are you considering? There are many threads here on R2R that can help you further.

Are your corals ever subjected to the open air with no water for water changes or tank maintenance?
