Hey everyone, My name is Kennan, and I'm an alcoho...*ahem*..just kidding I'm just starting a 77ga saltwater tank. I just filled her up, put some salt in and letting it circulate and do it's thing for a bit. I'll slowly add some live rock and everything else I need. I've been wanting to make this tank a 'salty' for a long time but for some reason figured I needed everything NOW, and I needed it all at once. Of course not being able to afford everything up front, I hadn't started it. Talking to a friend at the LFS, I was convinced I can do this somewhat 'over-time' which is what I'm doing. This is my first foray into saltater tanks but have some freshwater experience. I've been an aquarist for about eight years-or-so. I have two large Iridescent Sharks that I've had for at least five or six years. So..I'm hoping to have some luck with a saltwater tank. I have to admit though I get lazy sometimes with water changes and stuff so..I have to be on my toes here otherwise, I'll lose fish. This 77ga tank is planned to be a fish-only tank. I want a puffer(probably a dog-face) and maybe a lionfish. Other than that..I want something nice that looks nice and is compatible. I have a 35 ga sitting empty right now that I think I want to turn into a reef tank. There's some really nice 'timid' fish that I would like to keep so...after I get the 77 up-and-running, I'll work on my reef tank. That's about it for me, for now anyway. I just want to say, that I discover this site about a week ago and have been dropping in and reading stuff. It looks like a good board with lots of knowledge and no real sassy-ness or name calling, so it looks like it'll be fun here. Thanks to anyone and everyone who reads and replies, I look forward to posting and getting to know you guys(and gals). Take care all!! Kennan p.s. Does anyone have much experience with a Red-finned Batfish? I saw one years ago and it was huge, beautiful, and really caught my eye. I know it's for experinced aquarists so I'm not even considering it..for now. Just thought I'd ask if anyone is very familiar with them. Thanks again!!
