    Hey everyone, my names Seth and I wanted to say hi and introduce myself and my tank! Up to this point I’ve been more of a freshwater scrub, but with classes at the U being canceled I’ve really come to fall in love with the reefing community! Currently I’m running a biocube 32 with an AI Prime HD. Livestock include a pair of clowns, an orange fire fish pair, a swales swissguard, a pinkbar goby (paird with a pistol shrimp), and of course a clean up crew. Also have numerous lps and softies! Here’s a pic of the tank! Would love some suggestions on my tank, how I can gain even more knowledge on this hobby.

    Welcome, tank looks good.

    How to gain more knowledge... Time and research/questions. Attend a meeting and discuss with others, unfortunately right now our next meeting isn't until August. Tough to answer the general "what can I do better" but there's some pretty knowledgeable people here and then some that don't know a ton like myself.

    Welcome!

    Your tank looks like it's doing just fine.
    Nick pretty much summed up the rest of it. If you have specific questions, just start a thread and you'll hopefully get opinions based from a wide array of experiences. There's many methods and practices that have varying successes in this hobby, so you'll slowly figure out where your system does best.

    Looking good, my tip is get a clip on filter lens for your cell phone (for fun) and/or when you take a pic turn your white lights up when possible.
