    A Quick Hello: I'm new to MARSH and reefing

    Hello!


    I am new to this site and to reefing. I met OceansX and a few other members (I didn't get their names, but very nice and helpful reefers!) at FJW the other weekend. They invited me to this site.

    Recently, I purchased a used AIO from Craigslist. It's a Fluval 13.5 gallon... that really has 12 gallons excluding the sump area... I noticed a few people on this and other forums have/had one.

    While fish are nice, I LOVE looking at beautiful, gorgeous corals. I guess that works out with my small tank, because I will only have two small fish and select soft and LPS corals.


    Current stock (with history):
    2 trochus snail- purchased 1 week ago
    2 porcelain crabs- hitchhikers on the live rock I bought w/ the tank
    1 anemone- came on the live rock I purchased w/ the tank... what kind? I have been told a rock anemone, but it doesn't look anything like the pictures I see...
    1 GSP frag- a MARSH person convinced me to get a coral last weekend... this fell about midway on my list. I hope it is a good boy.
    1 mushroom frag- I don't know what kind. Impulse buy.
    1 Ruby Red Dragonet- I know, I KNOW! I am more than happy to explain my poor choice of fish if someone asks...

    Past stock:
    1 cerith snail; died a few days ago- hitchhiker with live rock I bought with tank


    pH is sitting at 8.0 consistently, I would like to raise it
    nitrates sitting at 20 consistently, I would like to lower them


    I am excited to be reefing!

    Mine kind of did too... Apparently it ate frozen at the LFS. When I got it home, I got it to eat some mysis. But then, I gave it some tigger pods (I think he ate some, hopefully many because they were expensive-- that's a completely different story) and Nutramar. Now he won't touch mysis I have some pods coming from Algae Barn and I am hoping to grow them on my own. So, he will have a diet of pods and Nutramar.

    I stand corrected. He ate mysis tonight! I just got him, so he is adjusting, and so am I. He seems to be doing well thus far. I hope he is in it for the long haul =)
