Hey all you salties out there!
Im looking to start my first saltwater tank (fowlr
for now-we'll see about some corals when I get used to saltwater) I'm going to start with a 20 gallon L tank which is as big as I can go for now . I have a lot of questions.
Cycling-can I do the regular fishless cycling with ammonia?
Ph-could it be anywhere on the range like freshwater?
Anything special I have to do in a sw fowlr
compared to a fw
community? Just feed and make sure salinity is good? Or is there more to it?
Topping the tank off-do I make saltwater just to top the tank off? Or do you top it off with freshwater because the salt doesn't evaporate?
Live Rock- what does it do, anything special? I plan on getting 30 lbs of base rock and maybe 5 lbs of live Rock.
Corals- do you feed them? What do I have to test for with corals? Can you give me the jist on how to keep them alive and healthy?
water is best to use, I know. But my parents got a water filter for the kitchen. It looks like an rodi
system, it has the 3 cylinder filter things. It hooks up to the tap and I just turn the water on and bam it's filtered. I'm going to list all the things it removes in a second. But, would I be able to use this water? Or would rodi
water be best? Edit: this is what it removes:
Chlorine taste and odor
Phew that's a lot. Thanks in advance
