Cheers Marcel it was a bit of a mess as I'd just moved everything over.
Biggest thing I've learnt is it takes real patience. I see people all the time chucking new stuff into their tanks but it changes the balance of the tank. The animals and corals won't like it bearing in mind they come from the most stable environment on earth.
I'd recommend getting your own ro unit to make your own water for two main reasons. Shop bought water can be shocking giving you no control. It also costs more in both buying the water and also buying stuff in the shop you don't need.
Salifert test kits in my opinion are the best and easiest to use.
I'd recommend zoas and other soft corals to begin with. Some LPS like hammers are also pretty forgiving.
Me personally when I had a noon I would aerate and heat the water prior to adding it. My tank was 100 litres and I changed 10l in one go once a week every tank is different though
I'd recommend marine reef, fish and coral enthusiast in Sussex and surrounding areas on Facebook. A really chilled bunch with tons and tons of knowledge. Much friendlier than the forums. I'm on there causing havoc most nights
Great hobby. More addictive than crack cocaine allegedly
Oh and my best tip... Keep your hands out of the tank at all costs good luck with it! Send me n email if you get stuck or need a hand
