    So it's a pre tank journal right now but that's OK. We are all going to be in this process together, at least that's my hope, because I'm going to need some help along the way. Just got my refractometer in the mail today and it got me kind of excited about the whole thing! Feel free to drop some helpful advice you might have before I go and make the mistakes so many have made before me and save me the embarrassment

    .....people did always tell me I'm salty, but I don't think this is what they meant.

    I had a RSM 250 and they are a beautiful tank indeed, I'll talk to you more about it tomorrow and share my tips with you.

    Got the tank this weekend and successfully delivered to my house in one piece...phew!! Just in the process of getting her all cleaned up and filled, I'll post pictures after. No one wants to see my pain

    Really excited and a big shout out to Anthony for all his help and for making it all happen.

    P.S. I know we all love pictures, and I'll have lots, just right now this tank makes even me look sexy. Good thing elbow grease is in strong supply at my house!

    So, I got this beauty all cleaned up and ready to rock then I sit down on my couch and start to get the jitters....

    Now I'm sitting here arguing with myself about the pros and cons of saltwater trying to convince myself to go through with it all. Pro - I have literally everything a guy could want to head down this road. Con - I'm scared!!

    Still not too sure what to do about it all.

    Just start with the easy stuff. Sand, simple rock formation, a couple corals, a cleaner shrimp, a couple easy fish

    Mark, buddy, you've gone too far to stop now. Once you have it set up, add & aquascape the dry rock and let it sit for a month or more to cycle. This will give you time to plan what you want to keep in it. I would recommend some easy soft corals (colt, green finer leathers, colourful mushrooms and green star polyps to start) and maybe a couple of clownfish. That should keep the wife & kids happy. Low bioload, low maintenance, easiest way to get started in reefing.

    Anthony
