Going to get some things tomorrow,
For the sand:
http://www.petco.com/product/115883/...rium-Sand.aspx
Its cheap, that bothers me a little, I'm afraid its painted..

http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...3227&lmdn=Type its kind of expensive, but its really all I have locally..

I'm leaning towards the second one.

Also getting a heater.

Ooh black? I really havent seen the use of black sand alot in sw tanks! This could be cool, the corals will be so bright!

I bought white petco sand, and i didnt have much trouble..

Well theres a big price difference in petco sand vs. the caribbean sand from petsmart. If its worth it I don't mind paying, but don't wanna pay more for no reason.

Question, since I don't have RO/DI do I just use distilled water? Or what?
