    Hey Guys,

    I'm Marcin and new to this forum and have just started my first Marine Tank.

    Its a 90ltr tank with sump filter.
    I have decided to just buy all the goodies at once.
    Its running a protein skimmer, reactor and have just added a chiller due to the water temperature rising to 29 degrees during the day.
    The tank has been running for 4 weeks now to get the water ready. I have taken the water to a pet shop for sampling and it all tested good after the 4 weeks. I have introduced now two yellow tails and two clowns 48 hours ago and they all seem to be very happy.

    If i'm missing anything any advise would be much appreciated as i'm a noobie to this.

    I would like to eventually start introducing Corals.

    What I have picked up is a lot of green/brown algae growth.

    The green and brown growth is algae. Perfectly normal to have in a new tank.
