    New to this addiction

    Hey guys I am John. I have had my SW set up for about a month so far and slowly learning each day. So far I have a 75 gallon tank with a mated pair of clowns, Atlantic Blue tang, rusty Angel, damsel, blue spot puffer and a few different shrimp (fire, cleaner and coral banded). Mainly live rock with a few small polyps, acrodia mushrooms(spelling) and a ton of aptasia that I am still trying to decide on what course of action to take with them.

    Hello and welcome. I have had some success with aptasia using peppermint shrimp that I purchase from Bush at Coral Expressions I'm rather new myself just a few months and understand the pains of growing and learning in this hobby it's a whole different beast that fw but so much fun. There are tons of awesome people on here that are tons of help! Do some self research in prior posted threads if you have questions and then ask away!

    Welcome. Tank looks nice. I've had good luck with aiptasia eating filefish.

    That is what I am thinking I will try first. I need to work on my system components soon though.

    Thank you, I have actually already purchased through Jonathan(Atlantic blue and fire shrimp). I am planning on some peps through him and possibly a kliens butterfly or a file fish.

    Those are good looking fish as well, I may be adding that to the list of possibilities. Thank you for the mention.

    Hey, I know another guy who sells two more LEDs for $25 each. Let me know if you or your boss is interested. He's also got a bunch of great frags for sale.

    Let me know if you guys are interested.
