    Hello all.

    I'm new to the site. I stumbled across the site as I was looking for local SW aquarium clubs. I lurked around for a bit and decided to make a profile. Anyway a little about myself I guess. I have been keeping FW aquariums off and on for years and always wanted to get into the reef keeping hobby but always felt it was too daunting. Well I finally took the plunge and shut down my FW tank and went all in. My setup isn't anything super impressive, as I am just starting out and I am very limited on space so I had to go nano, at least for now. I'll post a pic of my tank this evening.

    My tank setup is as follows:
    37g tall (30x12x22)
    Fluval 306
    40# live sand and 30# of cured dry rock.
    Orbit Pro 24" light with stand
    Jaebo PP-4 wavemaker
    Aqueon pro 250.

    Live stock:
    2 Clowns
    Lawnmower
    Dwarf Angel
    Red and purple Firefish
    Fire Shrimp
    Skunk Shrimp
    Cleaner Wrasse
    6 line Wrasse
    invert cleanup crew.

    Corals

    Soft/leathers:
    Toadstool
    Green LT toadstool
    Green Star Polyp (isolated to an island rock)

    Zoa:
    SunnyD
    Eagle Eye

    LPS:
    Blue tipped hammer
    Duncan
    Acan Lord (purple/green)
    LT plate
    Kryptonite Candycane.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I'll post a pic my tank this evening.

    Thanks! It took me a couple attempts to get it to this. The first try I had this massive tonga shelf in there that with the counter weight made it a giant lump of rock and severely limited my options for mounting corals. I ended up transferring all the live stock to my spare 20g for the day so I could rework the rock to what's in there now. The left side is big but its all opened up in the middle for plenty of water flow and places for the fish to sleep at night. Well all do except my clowns. They swim up to the top right corner by the outlet and heater and stay there all night. I'm hoping when my hammer/FS get large enough I can coax them into hosting it instead.
