I have recently joined the forum. I live in colorado springs and am new to saltwater. I need a lot of help. I have always had freshwater. I currently have a 90 gal high tech planted discus tank. My wife want to convert her 36 gal corner tank to a saltwater for christmas. So I converted it for her. http://i.imgur.com/R6CVJhl.jpg

Welcome and keep the pics rolling. What type of filtration are you running?

It's all personal preference honestly, but we're it me, I would ditch the canister filter. With a skimmer a fuge you should have ample filtration. Canister filters are nitrate factories and IMHO not a good choice for saltwater considering the other available options out there. And welcome to the family, hope you can make some meetings and get to know us and we you!

Word of advice, I would put a screen top on the tank. I saw two jumpers and a chaser in your tank.

the two openings are super small, I was worried too. Im not to sure if they could get out of it.
