    Hi all,

    I am new to the saltwater arena, and I have read a lot and done a lot of research. This is an interesting and fascinating hobby. I realised that patience is virtue with this hobby. "Good things come to those who wait"

    I have setup my tank and sump, it is a 120l tank with a 30l sump. I have two wavemakers in the display tank, the sump is setup with a large refugium that contains live rock (I intend to grow macroalgae), a filter area, protein skimmer and return pump. I have an ro filter as well. At the moment, tank is cycling. I am building a stand for the fish tank as well, which I hope to add in the diy section.

    Just a few simple questions: would a large refugium with macro algae negatively affect the growth of live coral due the nutrient levels?

    I will take the stocking of the tank very slowly, with regards to fish, how many inches would be suitable for this tank. I have kept my rock structure minimal in the display tank.

    I find this forum to be informative and friendly. I look forward to feedback and interactions going forward.
