Diving in thanks to simplicity!

We got a NanoCube 29g on Feb 1 and so excited to see how easy it is, we decided to dedicate that tank to be a GBR biotope.

I've been looking for a 55-90g tank, with no real intent to buy until after June - hoping to get one up & cycling around Independence Day.

Then this happened:

Found a pretty good deal on craigslist:

2-3yo 75g w/10g sump with bioballs, 48" LED light (Marineland? Will know tomorrow), return pump, durso drain, all piping & plumbing, for $200, here in Omaha.

Will be looking at it, and probably buying it tomorrow (4/17/15)

I'll post weekly(?) pics as it develops.

Gonna try to set up a Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean reef biotope.

Wish me luck!

Almost forgot...what's a good test kit? Is there a decently priced starter kit somewhere? I know I should get a refractometer...
