Hey folks,

Recently got into reefing after my boss gave me his tank. Super excited to learn and be surround by peeps with the same passion. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/11/15/uda6ydes.jpg

Welcome to the site. Looks like you have a great start there. Start a build thread to tell us all about your tank and give us lots of pictures.

The boss boss decide to pay out forward and hand down his tank. Super speed that he did because it freaking awesome. I've been routinely changing the water and making sure the environment in there is in good shape .
The tank is 20 gallons with 2 clowns a cleaner shrimp( who goes crazy when I feed them their food), zenias, tree corals, that grass looking one, and one that looks like a brain. Pics to come. This makes me want to get a bigger tank.

The grass one is green star polyps or "GSP". trees are kenya trees, and then the xenia. That trifecta is great if you love those corals but they do tend to take over in time and can make having other corals harder. Not sure about the brain but it looks like you have a couple good sized rose bubble tip (RBT) anemones in there for the clowns.

Yes they are(had to Google it first); they tend to grow in random places in here.
