Well, i got it for xmas, a new 55 gal
, the water is in and the sand is settling still cloudy but it's only been an hour. I figure I will get the live sand bed going, I borrowed a cup, and when things settle will start the filter, using a wet dry filter and have a cartridge filter standing by. Figure in a day or 2 will get the cartridge filter going and get the water cleared up then get the wet dry going... in a week i figure i will pickup some base rock and order some LR
... I hope I am on the right track with the startup.
anyone in southern New Jersey the Home Depot in Turnersville still has tropical play sand.
