Thank you all so much for your words of wisdom...you are all making me feel so much more at ease about taking on this addiction
I will phone my lfs
and see what they have for base and live rock and take it from there..know I am excited to get this whole process started..I will go very slow as I will be a chicken to try anything new
My next headache I am sure will be the lighting...
Oh and quick question....and most likely stupid too...do I need to run a ph when the tank is cycling?
Would a rena XP3 be a good canister filter or the XP2..also 2 ph or will one suffice....
