Re: 55 gallon salt Any suggestions on equipment

The above list sounds fine but I see no mention of a heater? Since you already have a 10g gal tank, I am assuming you already have the necessary test kits as well?

The proposed set up will also depend on the tank type to some degree but not much. Will it be an FO, FOWLR or reef?

If from a SW tank, the water will really be of no use in a new set up but the sand would be an excellent idea. It will strenghten the bacterial population as well as giving it a bit of a headstart on the fauna.

Cheers
Steve
