I've had my fish tank for about 6 months now and I was wondering if I should make the exciting journey into coral :biglaugh2:. What do you reckon? IF I was going to get coral in my tank then what lighting would I get? Could you recommend brands of lighting?

We have a hole built into our wall for old CRT tv's. We would like to put a salt water tank there and custom frame up the hole to make it look really custom. I have several concerns, one being the weight of the tank. The opening is 48" wide and 32" high and about 2 - 2.5 ft...
I've always wanted a reef tank but never started one til now I am planning to start my new tank this upcoming week and would like some feed back from the experts.
what I've bought so far is:
20 gallon tank
24" orbit marine led
circulation pump 950
pro 200 heater
fluval aqua clear 70
So I went out and bought my tank! Got a pretty killer deal on a used JBJ 28 Gallon Nano Cube LED Professional tank, with the stand and quite a few supplies included. Cleaned it up today and got it running to begin the cycle.
Don't mind me asking a few quick questions.
1. Do I keep...
I might start a 55 tank. I need to know from putting the water in to keeping the fish alive.
This is what I already know how to do.
What fish are capable with others
I will need some essential crabs, hermits, snails, and I think starfish.
One thing that had to be in the...
So Im looking to start a reef tank, tank size is going to be 10 gallons with plenty of light and flow. The only question is now, what are some good beginner corals that I should start with. I want some hardy stuff, but also pleasant to look at. Thanks
I am just about to set up my JBJ 30 Rimless and had a few questions. So far I have the tank, hydor slim skim nano skimmer, 2 50w eheim jager heaters, hydor koralia nano 425 pump, and a dimmable 120w LED light fixture. Could you guys suggest anything else that I'll need to set up a...
hi guys so i basically finished re-doing my tank just a couple of minutes... my tank was a mess, pH was low, and other elements are high... last night one of my fellow helpful friends gave advice on doing a MAJOR water change, 25 gallons, and now it looks cleaner and clearer. in addition i have...

Have a 29g setup with a ~10 sump and refugium. Wanted to get a 55gal but girlfriend convinced me otherwise for a starting tank. Been going strong now with only some skimmer issues and minor flooding when setting up the overflow system.

Hey everybody, I have a 20 gallon nano with a 24" 48W T5 fixture. Recently I've been interested in SPS and I'm wondering what are some good beginner types? It will probably be a few more months of research before I buy anything, but I still want to get a sense of some good ones to start off...
Hey guys, i hope this is in the right place.
I'm kinda new to these forums but have been following them for a fair while and i have to say, the thought of keeping a marine tank has me intrigued but I'm not sure if its for me and wanted to know what other people think.
I have been keeping...
I am new to the salt water world! We recently bought a 29 gallon salt water tank and have to let it filter though for 2-3 weeks. When that times comes, I had a few questions on what type of fish I should get.
1) Good starter fish
> easy to take care of
> not aggressive...
What exactly is this.Does this really eliminate the need for tank cycle.If so this could really spark more interest and easabilty into the hobby.I think more people would build more setups and people that are too affraid to start will now have an easier attempt...
