Thanks for the info Diablo, I am still willing to give it a shot to see if I can do it.
Yeah she said there were Damsel fish so I will find out when I go to pick it up later today.
I was thinking of starting small on the reef. Live Sand base, some chunks of live rock to seed some dead coral I have and I have a TON of lava rock/volcanic rock. As well I can easily get Slate and Granite chunk. Even have large chunks of Obsidian. MY family are rock hounds so I know quite a bit, and can get a lot of stuff haha.

So Yeah, I was thinking of just starting small and working with little sections at a time to grow the tank. I don't have the money to build and instant reef.
