I have a 55 gal FW
set up as follows
6 giant danios
1 BN pleco
Marineland magnum pro canister filter w/ biowheels
tons of plastic plants
two moss balls
two banana plants
aside from rehoming the plants, fish, and of course having to change the filter media and cleaning out the filter, do you think I could use the tank, substrate (after washing and drying out), and filter to start a FOWLR
set up? I have never had a saltwater tank before, and although I love the set up I have, I truly would love to start a SW
tank. But, almost needless to say, I would be working on an extreme budget so I would like to reuse as much as I could. Eventually I would work up to a sump set up after I got the hang of running things.
I know I would need to pick up a few things such as a hydrometer, salt, live rock and some kind of buffer solution. I have been given an RO
unit to hook up to our sink, so I'm not worried about.
Also, what would be a great starter fish? (after fishless cycling the tank)
