Getting back into the hobby


New member
My new tank is up and running about three months now, and am just starting to put fish in it. How can I tell when it is mature enough for softies? Lps? And/or sps?

New tank is a 100 g.


Imo once the tank has cycles it is ready for softies. Lps and sps shouldnt be added until the rock and sand have aged for awhile. Coraline algae is a good sign but every reefer and tank is different. At the end of the day it's your call.
