    Hey everyone, my name is Chris.
    I have had a freshwater tank for a few years now but now I just started my first saltwater tank. I have had it running for a week now. It's a 36 hex with a canister filter. I know they are not looked well upon for saltwater but that's the only thing I could get to fit. I have about a 2" bed of live sand and 38lbs of LR. My levels are still a bit high so now I'm just waiting for the tank to finish cycling to add some inverts for my cleanup crew.
