    Welcome to the site Gary! Glad to see that there's someone else getting there feet wet. :mrgreen: Everyone here is a great help with any questions you may have. You should post some pics in the "tank showcase" thread, if at all possible.

    Also, what are your palms for it? Reef? Fish only? And just a friendly reminder, take your time because patience is key. Atleast that's what I've learned.

    welcome in. The first rule is go slow and remember fish stores are in business to sell stuff. If you want to buy fish, corals. or anemomies ask someone who is here first. Get the name of whatever it is and please post a question on it on this forum. It will save you so much heartache (and money) in the end.
