55g Tank Journal

Hey guys just getting started on my upgraded tank. I actually just picked up my canopy from my LFS and still need to paint it black to match my stand. As for equipment:
-Wet Dry system with a Rio Pump: As for the bio balls in the wet dry I am trading the current bio balls (the new ones) with the LFS for some bio balls which already are cycled and havee bacteria on them. This should speed up my cycle.
-T5 HO 216w (Still waiting for them to come in)
-Still am yet to purchase any power heads.. open to suggestions.

Tom i will be filling the tank with fresh water and mixing salt and letting it run for a couple hours, then I will put my sand bed tommorow night. Along with some cured live rock from my other tank. The cycle in this tank should go relatively fast.

I will update a photo of everything tommorow

Suggestions are always welcomed!!

The tank looks good! I'd go with Koralias for the powerheads. What fish are you planning to keep?
