Welcome to the forum mate Very Happy

Just wondering what marine tank you have chosen and what type system you plan on keeping.

I'd say keep it simple, take your time and make sure there's no major fluctuations in temp, salinity or ph and it should go ok.

Keeping any unwanted algae at bay can be the toughest part and will ruin the overal look of the tank. A good clean up crew and not overstocking or over feeding will help, along with water changes obviously.

Will you be starting a thread in the marine tank diarys section?

Good luck!
