I've had a love of ocean creatures of all types most of my life. I've recently set up a sucessful reeftank which you can check out at http://www.sdreefs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8081
Anyway one day at my LFS they had an octopuss in and I fell in love. I've been reading on your site quite a bit to learn about care etc.
I'm getting a 60gal cube this weekend for my future friend.
A few questions:
What species is good for beginers?
Besides LR, does anyone use live sand?
Skimmer: better to have sump or HOTB?
Purchase: I live in San Diego, anyone know where I can get one, or is there a reputable online site where I can get one?
Thanks in advance, And I will be sharing my Journey.
