    Hello Everyone!

    New the Bay Area Reefers and a brand new reefer!

    Recently purchased a Biocube 14g from a member of Bay Area Reefers! She has been extremely helpful in giving me tips and pointers!

    I live in Menlo Park and hope to make it to Neptune tomorrow to purchase some water and live (unless anyone has any they want to sell)

    Thanks

    Welcome to the club! I’d recommend learning to mix your own water as it’s easy and adds up over the long haul.

    Other quick pointers:

    Avoid corals with names for a long while.

    Keep a light bioload: Gobies might be neat for your tank and some will pair with pistol shrimp. 14G is pretty limiting, so stick to 2-3 fish that stay small. Dore isn’t small ;)

    Prevention is the best remedy for pests like bryopsis, cyano, flatworms, monti eating nudibranchs, etc. Know your pests and how to avoid them!

    Do your water changes...They’re no joke.
