Your plan sounds solid so far. I do want to caution you that a 10 gallon tank is much harder to maintain than a 100 gallon tank. The salintiy will change due to evaporation, so you must top off the tank daily to maintain the proper SG
. You shouldn;t have too much evaporation dailiy, but it doesn't make much in a 10 gal
to make a difference.
The one thing that does translate from FW
is that PWC
are your friend. Keep up with at least a gallon a week on partial water changes after the tank cycles.
