Well my gold fish and koi are going to go to a new home next week. And there current tank (55gal) is going to be my first dip into salt. I have been planning this for a little while now, but still have a few questions. I ordered black moon sand, it is at the lfs
waiting for me. I am going to pick up a protein skimmer and a couple of power heads, oh ya the salt too. As of now the tank has a Emperor 400 filter on it. It has the standard lighting and I cant upgrade it right now, so I wanted to do a fish only type of thing.
Now my questions start . Will two clowns, thats what I want, do ok in this. I know that live rock is is a huge plus right now but can I do a good happy tank with out it. Should I drain all of the water that is in there now and start new or will some of that water be all right. If I need to have the other things, not including the tests , hydometer and so on, I will have to wait. Just got a new camera, car, and planning a trip , so money is limited for this.
I guess that I am being impatient by wanting to start it now. If the fish would suffer I will just start stocking every thing up now. And have more to start with later.
Thanks for any input.
