    A VERY WARM WELCOME to MASA, NGIS88! Great to have you on-board!

    Please elaborate for us, on exactly your tank specifications? What size tank do you have? Dimensions?
    What filtration do you have? Do you have a sump for your tank?
    What lighting? What skimmer? How much live rock are you adding?
    Are you testing your water parameters at all? What brand testing kits are you using to test your water parameters with?

    The most important water parameters you should be testing for, are:
    - pH
    - Salinity/SG (specific Gravity)
    - water temperature
    - ammonia
    - nitrites
    - nitrates

    Please give us the exact readings of the above water parameters? That we can perhaps possibly assist you best in getting your "issues" resolved?

    Also - could you be so kind as to elaborate on exactly what "issues" you are running into?

    If you have and give us, we would really appreciate photographs of your tank, lifestock, live rock, filtration, in-tank pumps, skimmer, etc....

    Enjoy the hobby! It's an amazing, and addictive hobby, that becomes a very long journey!

    Please keep in mind that, for you to keep marines successfully, you require a HUGE AMOUNT OF PATIENCE!

    Also - that you need to read as much as you can. And also ask as many questions as possible!
    Please don't just believe ANYTHING your lfs/local fish store/local pet shop tells you.
    BEFORE you purchase ANYTHING, please come and double check with us!
