    Looking for feedback on my fish plan!

    That’s likely too many fish. As donn41 mentioned that inch per gallon is more for freshwater, general rule of thumb for saltwater keeping is about an inch per 5 gallons...that said your filtration system can impact a lot. Once you pick your fish by that general rule, check out mixing in some crabs or shrimp as opposed to more fish. They generally have a lower bio load, can be really colorful and active, and most can even help with cleaning something in your tank.

    What would you do in my shoes

    Late to the game but FYI the instant ocean reef crystals shows these numbers:

    Agreed, if it’s a brittle no real harm in leaving it.

    You bet, thanks for hosting and inviting us! I thought it was pretty cool getting some insight into the design and thought process behind their products. They’re definitely passionate about what they’re doing and put a lot of thought into thinking of what we as users would like.

    Seems to be all about the effort put in honestly. Stay on top of maintenance routines and almost anything can work from a jar to 300 gallons I'd bet, it looks like you've already got a great start from what this says.

    Thanks WV, might just take your advice. The big long and dirty tank looks pretty epic.

    Oooh nice! I like those mushrooms too. Are you doing 100% water changes? I'm debating on just dumping out the sump which would be about 40% vs the entire tank weekly.

    Hahaha "WWC buttkissers", beautiful item...but I may have to rename it if someone asked what type it is.

    I've got a little space (ha the irony), do you guys think it'd be beneficial to add a little 3" x 2" bag of bio media, bioballs, or maybe charcoal if I'm already doing 50-100% water change every week?

    Had some pretty good opening today, although the orange zoa's are being a little more picky. I had to put some styrofoam under the tank because vibrations from me typing seemed to scare all of them back into hiding every few minutes. Hopefully the orange zoas get comfortable with a little moving and open up next week after the first water change. Up close with no Filter:

    We have life! Well all the previous aquascaping went out the window. My LFS sells frags on rocks instead plugs, so I just glued one to a live rock and made them part of the scenery. They look more appropriately sized than the mountain I'd originally had in there imo.

    Haha I literally thought of taking one of the lower offers and getting a fluval spec iii. That 2.7 gallons seems like sooo much more by by comparison.

    Maybe a “diy” temporary cover until the ATO arrives?
