What's up all. Well I've had the tank for a couple years and never even got fish in them LOL, kinda sad. I had it set up for freshwater, completely cycled and all, and that's it.
It's now just sitting with water in it and been turned off for a while.
I am in process of buying a house and now want to go with saltwater, this is the equipment I have so far, don't know if a "protein skimmer" is necessary still have to google what that's about.
It it a 120(60 X 18 X ~26) with
-60" dual lights
-Glass Tops(one side broken)
-Stand with 2 doors
-2 Rena XP3s w/some replacement filter
-2 Large Pieces of Drift Wood
-2 Large Fake Plants
-120 pounds of black gravel
-2 300w(I think) visi-therm stealth heaters
-1 Large Magna Float
Obviously the driftwood, fake plants, and gravel is of no use in saltwater. I will be going with sand, corals, and live plants like anemone, is that a "plant"? lol For the Rena filters, what kind of medium do I put in them? Do saltwater tanks even create biological filters like fresh do?
Anything that I NEED to get this set up? I'm thinking the wavemaker, not sure if a necessity, I plan later on to probably get inline UV
filter. That's all.
