    Hello to the LivingReef community. I'm looking forward to the great advice from everyone.

    I'm just starting out with my first saltwater tank which is a 50 gallon.

    I was planning on just starting out with fish with live rock and seeing where that leads me.

    I currently only have about 10 pounds of live rock, 2 Clown Fish, 1 3-Strip Damsel, and a Yellow Tail Damsel.

    I just installed my T5 light which is really cool.

    Here is what I have done since I first created my account a few weeks ago.

    60 pounds of live sand
    59 pounds of live rock
    2 Clown Fish
    1 Yellowtail Blue Damsel

    Like a NEWB I orginally installed a canister filter but I'm removing it tonight as I can't get my nitrates down and now I know why thanks to the fine people on LivingReefs

    I plan on getting about 19 more pounds of live rock. I ordered an RO/DI today since I'm tired of running water back and forth to the LFS.
