First salty tank

Iím making the jump over to the dark side and would like to share my progress/ get opinions

Itís the 13.5 g fluval evo kit with the sump and skimmed built into the side

The pump has about 132 gallons of flow so I think Iím gonna need another power head

But here is a FTS

Well looks like things are pretty standard for a newly started tank and a Smok vape?

Good luck. Welcome to the salty side of things.

Before we go that far, what is the ammonia source? Has it had it presented recently? A tank isnít cycled until ammonia can be consumed in a 24 hour period

Dr Timís ammonia (been using it for years), 4 ppm in 12 hours, dosing every 12 hours before and after work, the dosing pwc to remove nitrates, I have done fishless cycles many times in freshwater tanks. This is not my first time keeping fish. I would never add fish to an environment that would become toxic for them because I wasnít patient

Ok, so at this point you are only limited in the size of the system. Outside of a couple clowns, I'd suggest checking out the nano fish section on liveaquaria and have a look around to see if anything trips your trigger.
