This is my not-at-all confusing list of equipment so far:
Starting Nano Reef
Test Kit - API Liquid High Range PH Test Kit (Amazon.co.uk)
Tank - 10G (already got)
Lighting - DBPOWER® 48 LED
White Blue Light 3 Mode Fish Tank Aquarium Clip Lamp Adjustable Soft Arm (Amazon.co.uk)
Heater - 200w (already got)
Powerhead - Hydor Koralia Nano 1600 Circulation and Wave Pump (Amazon.co.uk)
5kg Rock - Pukani Dry Rock (live-rock.co.uk)
5kg Live Sand - Caribsea Aragonite (Dobbies)
*Optional* Salt Mix - Kent Reef Salt Mix
Chemical Filtration - Chemi-Pure Elite (Amazon.co.uk)
Refractometer - RHS-10ATC 0-10% Salinity Refractometer Salt Water Aquarium (Amazon.co.uk)
Fill the tank with water and add salt until the specific gravity is 1.023.
Place the powerhead in immediately so it will help mix the salt. Now is also the time to place in your heater and get the water temperature to 78 degrees.
Once your s.g. has reached it's proper level, you can add the live rock and live sand.
Once the rock is where you like it, you can pour the live sand around the rocks, keeping it at a fairly even thickness throughout the tank.
