Ok all... well do to loss of job, and moveing to return to college for a new career, my last attempt at SW
a 10 gallon Nano was niped in the bud before fullying getting realized.
i sold of the LR
, fish, inverts and all instead of moveing it...
so now i will try again, a a slightly large scale, and use the 10 gallon as a sump/fug for the new project.
here is where i am at so far...
tank is filled, added sand, some turbo snail shelles (left over from my shellies
) and HOB
filter from a FW
tank to provide FW
bacteria to die off and start the cycle. filled it with SW
and a heater, a powerhead and starting the thing running.
added a crab, who was turned in to Petco as a hitchhicker...
consensis is he is bad, so if he survives the cycle...i'm one week in... then he will probaly become Oscar food.
trying to find some good baserock i like... hard thing around here... and then will add some LR
