I got a tank 2 weeks ago, planned on going fresh water, got a HOB
aqua-clear, and started the fish-less cycle, and I'm about a week away from getting fish, but know i have fallen in love with SW
fish and don't want to go FW
anymore. I have a 30 gallon Hex, its all i can fit right now. I have been reading a lot on here and i know im going to need about 40lbs of LR
, as for lighting in kinda clueless, corals are cool but im sure it would be hard for them to get good lighting in a hex so im just going fish and LR
, im pretty handy so I can DIY one if some good advice is givin, now i know i should take out my river rock, and replace it with sand, but what about mixing the salt, can i mix the salt with the water that is already in the tank?
