    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA Dale!

    It's a VERY big difference between keeping fish only, and keeping fish and soft-corals, and LPS/SPS corals....

    It takes a LOT of experimenting to get the "balance just right".....

    Good luck - and keep us updated with your steps...

    Also - PLEASE ask as many questions as you can.......

    hello Dale welcome to MASA :)

    nice to have you here. I look forward to watching your tank progress :)

    Reefing on a student budget isnt easy, but we have a number that manage very well :) Good luck and happy posting
