Hey WEll its finally kicking off. I've mixed the salt...I actually added way to much so my salinity was about 1.027 however I've got it back down to 1.23 (good Right) So I have not researched what i'm going to stock as i figured i'd have plenty of time as i do an cycle. To set up I used tap but dont worry once its up and going i'll do weekly PWC
water from my LFS
. How is .59 per gallon FW
and 1.00 for SW
.not bad.i think..
anyway lets start off saying i spent about 200 bucks I have about 35 lbs of lr
//60 lbs or aragonitemax // and 13 lbs of base (dry rock). Is that Good or bad??
What filtration that i'm running today is a AquaClear 70 HOB
that was switched from my FW
. I'm planning on going with a canister but just taking my time. I also have 1 powerhead running but have two i'm replacing parts to put them in there.. I wasnt going to go with a protein skimmer but have a guy willing to sell me one for 40 bucks...he said its a 175$ p.s. but i forgot the name...
Well..I'll show u pics from Friday to Today..... FYI i was worried about losing sand since it was so fine..the bag said that its not absolutely mandatory to rinse..But i disagree after i didnt..i have a milk tank....but heres so shots.... follow along...we'll journey from FOWLR
TO REEf (MAYBE) as I want some ANEMOME>>or as i call it (FLOWY stuff) But not sure what lights i can get...dont want any hard corals. just the anenome
