    Hello all - I'm new to this forum and look forward to learning a ton. Several years back I had a successful fish-only 55g saltwater acrylic tank. Once I sold the setup, I figured I'd never get back into it if only because of cost. Fast forward to today, a good friend of mine had his 90g tank...

    Hey Folks, May have jumped the gun on this one. I took the 'canary in a coal mine' approach here, and got a cheap frag from the LFS and tossed it into my tank (well, carefully dripped and placed lovingly). I just wanted to see what would happen. We're coming up to the 2 month anniversary of...
