Potential 50 gallon reef tank

I just started research on reef tanks. Any equipment/stocking recommendations?

75 gallon planted tank. About to stock.

Try another forum. Reef Central is the top one for reefs.

Do you already have experience with reef tanks? I thought you did, based on this comment. But reef-centric forums are your best bet, as @mboley suggested.

Like I said via private message, it's probably a good idea to spend several months researching - maybe even a year - before the beginning stages of a reef tank. There are setups you can run for almost any skill level but they can also be more of a commitment and pose larger potential health risks (palytoxin) for newcomers or those ill-prepared. That's not to scare you off but it's important to know that preparation is vital.

It's good that you're asking questions and starting research because that kind of education will go a long way toward making you a successful tank keeper. Put in way more research than you did for planted tanks and you'll also feel more prepared and confident in your ability if you do begin a new tank.
