HELLO FORUMERS! I am brand new to the reef scene. This weekend i'll be picking up a 55 gallon tank that my dad has laying around not in use and beginning what i'm sure will be a long project. I have been reading anything i can find about setting up and starting a reef tank and all this absolutely fascinates me. My goal over the next month or so is to get all necessary components that i need to start getting water ready. I am trying to figure out what all i need and what each component does. LOTS TO LEARN! If anybody has some extra time to give me a crash course in what all i need in the way of electronics i would appreciate it greatly. I plan to go as slow as i need to so that i can create a perfect ecosystem for the future fish and coral. I don't have a very big budget to start with, just trying to keep the wife happy and start a new hobby, but i do understand short-cutting and buying crap will only set me back and cost me more money. I would appreciate any and all tips, tricks, or info anyone has for me. Thanks for reading! Hope to get some good info!
