I decided to jump into the saltwater world with both feet. I started a 75 gal
build in my basement. It quickly got out of hand and cost a lot more money then I planned on. Hopefully, it will be worth it in the end.
I have a Hydor 505 performer skimmer, Mag 18 return pump, Spectra Pure 90 gpd RO
unit, (2) Hydor 1400 gph
Koralia power heads and a pair of Kessil A350W LED
I used 1.5 inch for the drains and 3/4 inch for the returns with two lockline heads on each return. And I made a rookie mistake adding the water and did not cover the sand so I had a cloudy mess for a week now. Needless to say I am ready for some rock and fish. Here are a couple pics of my progress so far.
I've been getting a ton of advice from the local fish store but any suggestions and advice are appreciated.
