    Well I got my 25 gallon all set up about 3 weeks ago and it is now cycled. I got a new little clownfish his name is Stewie a skunk cleaner shrimp named Rupert and two red legged hermit crabs named tick and tack.
    These are my fist saltwater fish so I'm pretty excited to have them and I can't wait to get my corals and the other fish I want but slow and steady is what works in this hobby so I'll let the tank adjust to my new fish.
    Anyways I'll post some pics below and I'll try to update this every Sunday with new pics and status of the tank so thanks for checking it out and have a great day :)

    Day one of set up.

    Yeah they are still pretty shy but I'll try to get some when they come out.

    Just make sure your nitrates are as low as possible when you start adding corals. Zero is best, nice tank though.

    Its a bit late but you should try not to place live rock/corals right next to the glass as this makes cleaning a nightmare.
