Seems I've read a lot of long timers having complete crashes and losing lots of investment so I guess my thought is what difference does it make between now and then.

Three anemones for a beginner is bold, as well as the two scolys. Not saying it won't "pay off", but be careful and attentive to the needs of what is still a very young tank. I was bold in the beginning as well, except bold for me meant a 30 dollar SPS frag and a sailfin (who's out of the tank now). Success is hard enough to come by in this hobby with a slow and steady approach.

Given that, it sounds like it's already a very beautiful tank, so post some pics already!

Bought a rock w 1 sunburst 1 bta the bta split in 3 a week later. Gave 1 to a friend already after catching trying to find another spot. If I catch another hopefully back down to 2. No turning back. Reading a lot getting lots of advice. Hopefully with some luck and a whole lot of attentiveness I'll be good. Haven't been able to upload picks to this forum yet on other forums I can. Any ideas? Always says upload failed.

Get a photobucket account and upload the pics there. Then copy the IMG link and past it into the forum post here :)

Yes - Reef Central doesn't host photos itself, so you'll need a cloud service to post links from. Note: pics from tapatalk don't work.

Can't figure the pic thing out yet! Why isn't as easy as r2r or even Chicago reef forums. Do everything from phone and t2t
