Hey everyone, so i got a decent deal off CL
for a 24gal nanocube. Everything works good on it except the lights which i need to replace. It came with bio balls which from my understanding help breed useful bacteria to eliminate ammonia out of the water. It also came with live sand but the guy said he had it sitting in his garage for a month. I don't know if this sand is still considered safe/live anymore. Anyways, I have been keeping freshwater for some time now but have always been afraid of the SW
Well i want to begin with this biocube.
I am planning on starting out with a FOWLR
tank and see where that takes me in time. I honestly don't know where to begin. I guess i need to figure out if this sand is good or not so i can replace it. Then I should pick up the pre mixed saltwater for my tank. I know i need live rock to add but don't know how much or what kind for that matter. Once i have that it's cycling time. I am a slow cycler because i want to make sure water conditions are as "perfect" as they can be before adding any tankmates to it. PLEASE lend me your advice and experience as I do not want any fatalities but at the same time I would like to keep my wallet alive haha. Thanks everyone you rock!!
