After doing freshwater for a couple years I finally have got bored with it. It has become almost maintenance free for me so I decided to setup a saltwater tank.
I was going to start with just a 10 gallon, but quickly decided to upgrade to a 40 (only $40!)
I started a cycle already in the 10 gallon with about 15lbs of rock and some live sand, and it has been running for a week or two.
Just setup the 40 today, combined the sand from 10 gallon with 40lbs of new dry stuff, added about 7 gallons of the current water and mixed it altogether with some new freshwater and salt.
So now it is all mixing and settling.
I plan on adding more rock in tomorrow when I can see, and then letting it run for awhile (3 powerheads, 2 heaters, 1 hob
Found a perfect stand I had sitting in my garage that I used for a really old big tv (my tv is 22 lbs now
So, I have a few 10 gallon tanks sitting around. I would really like to create a sump out of two 10 gallons, because it would be free and the space inside the cabinet is very odd (24x24x20)
Any advice on how to start this? I would like a HOB
overflow, going to the first tank with a skimmer, and going into the second 10 gallon for a refuge/return.
Any advice or criticism is welcomed :biggthumpup:
Also, here is the equipment I'm running..
Lights: 2x250 MH
14k, 2 65 pc
actinics, 8 led
Heaters: 2x 150 aqueon pro
Movement: 2x Hydor Koralia Evo 750, and one random brand one
