    That new new

    New to reef frontiers and new to the hobby!

    Been wanting to start a reef tank for years now but not until recently have I been able to.
    First tank is a 40 Breeder that is cycling as I write this! So much excitement!

    Any way, this is my hello post, glad to be here and looking forward to the journey.

    Zhenya

    The only fish that I have set are two ocellaris clownfish. The rest of the stock list is yet to be determined. As far as everything else is concerned. I'd like to have a clean up crew of snails and crabs (more cuz I like the "small ecosystem" feel and all the little life running around). Also, for coral I'll go mainly soft and LPS with some SPS once I'm a little more seasoned. I want the tank to look like a piece of nature more then a box of animals I like

    So any direction, advice or info on what to get would be awesome

    Welcome!

    A 40b is a great tank to start out. Are you running a sump? Plans for lighting, etc?

    I am running a sump that I built from old aquarium glass. Wanted as big a sump as I could get but the standard 29 gallon didn't fit. So I tore it apart and cut the glass to make a good sized sump that could fit I plan on running macro in the rather large middle chamber.
    As far as lighting goes I haven't purchased anything yet. Thought about going with an SB reef light.

    Thanks so much,
    But I heard that once you're caught you're hooked
    Or was it that the only medication was more and more of this awesome hobby
