Probably will have to wait till next week though. I may go to this LFS
south of me to check out their livestock and see if I can get a skimmer (From what I've see, they have a bargin corner where stuff is either missing pieces or is dirty for up to 75% off!! I'm willing to fix stuff to save money.)
Once I get the stand patched up and painted to match (mom's are picky but I'm ok with it this time.) I will buy the sand (dry aragonite not "live" bagged sand) and get water in there. I'm probably commiting an aquarium keepers sin by not using RO
water but from what I'm seeing, its not REQUIRED. So I'll see how it goes.
