Pictures would be a big help. If you're planning on a FOWLR or a Reef tank. you will need at least 24 more lbs of live rock. /you can do half live and half dry base rock but it will take a bit longer to colonize sufficient bacteria for adequate cycling. MediaHound's questions should all be answered as well as what your parameters are. values for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrtate, pH, Salinity and phosphates.

A picture is worth a thousand words...Bryopsis can look a lot like Hair Algae and if often mistaken for HA but is a whole nother nightmare and difficult to deal with.
