    Hello,
    I just started with a 55 gal. saltwater tank. I am new at all of this so I may have a lot of questions for everyone.

    Hello, be careful with that starfish since it eats coral.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm not planning on having corals in my tank.

    Hello Cathy, nice to have you here. Nanoreefing4fun is correct. Starfish are not really suited for any tank, especially such a new tank. Many creatures subsist on algae or detritus in the sea and eat constantly. Your tank is a little new but you can try to feed it every couple of days.

    You can also turn those pictures upright so I don't have to turn my computer screen sideways to see them :D
    But it's fine and the clowns look good.
    Welcome. :cheers:

    As a note, your picture shows a neon dottyback. If you got that for the price of a purple dottyback, you got a fantastic bargain. Either fish can be very aggressive, so be careful what you put with them.
