I started in saltwater about 3 years ago. was told to take it slow don't get impatiens. so first thing i did was go to the local fish store an bought me some rock. i could not decide, bould style rocks, flat plate like rocks or stem/stick rocks. so i bought a bunch of all. got home and looked at my 90 gallon deep tank and said hell rule of thirds i can make 3 different style of aquascape ( 3 islands) i have my plate island, a stick island and a boulder island. it cycled and then i started my first saltwater tank. as i was told to go slow i let my tank be a FOWLR tank for 3 years getting over the laziness that some hobbyist go through. before stepping into Reefs/coral. i learned so much doing FOWLR that i think its time to start into a reef. i made my first purchase about a week ago it was a Mushroom Leather,then i thought 3 islands and 3 category of coral, softies, lps, and sps. so each island will support a different category of coral. took me days to get flow right for each island. so i took a tooth pick and glued a piece of plastic on to it to make a water flow indicator. shows the flag blowing in many differnt wats strong, light and even in like a whirlwind style. what im getting to is for beginners, take it slow. took me 3 years to get to the point that i feel like i am ready to do reef, sorry no pics, early morning right now and lights are off. will try later on today to post some

Is there anything that grosses you out about saltwater aquariums?
