So, i finally got my first saltwater tank set up yesterday. As of right now there are no corals. Just 1 GSP, 1 Lyretail molly, 5 hermits and 3 turbo snails. Here are some pictures for you guys to tell me what you think! At the moment i'm only running a single Koralia 3 in the tank. It's a 30g tank, btw.

I'm so excited and happy with it! How long before i can expect to see any potential hitchhikers?

This tank has been set up for quite a while with just sand/fish at 1.023-1.025 SG. This is my first SW tank, not my first tank in general, just fyi. Guess i should've specified that the setup was FINISHED yesterday, not all set up at once. ;]

Green spotted puffers can tolerate full marine even as juveniles but it isn't required. He's getting to the size where he should be around 1.016-1.018 SG so i figured i'd go ahead and make it marine.

It's been cycled for quite some time like i said, without rock, while i saved up for it all. (Expensive stuff around here)

I realize i don't need to overstock the tank. At most, besides inverts, i'm only going to have MAYBE a lawnmower blenny with the GSP. I'm thinking of getting rid of the molly, actually.

lilserb953: Thanks! It was hard to figure out where to put everything since the water was cloudy at first but i guess my judgment was good. lol. I haven't moved a single piece so far!
