    Placing a piece of the ocean in your living room is a huge responsibility, and commitment. Before you make a decision on whether you are able to supply the time and money to this hobby you need to research. You must be dedicated to supplying the best possible conditions for your livestock. Your research will inform you as to how you should run your system. From low budget, minimal maintenance, to high tech, maximum maintenance. Adjust your system to create an enjoyable hobby.

    Yep the slower the better, first tank I had I rushed and it ended up being a mess. The second one I'm taking allot slower, and it's way more stable and better looking
