Will look like a brownish dust on your rocks and sand bed.

I bought a pound of live rock rubble that had decent coralline on so it will seed my base rock and to my surprise when I pulled the rock out of the bag I found three tiny hermit crabs on some of the rock. I hope they survive the cycle but I'm not sure they will because they sure are tiny.

@joeball2007 I was like you the only thing I had was the tank and the whisper 20 filter. I got my stuff from a local fish store and it cost me just alittle over 500.00. I did however get a good deal on my light and 200 gallons of salt. The light was 120.00 and the box of salt was 49.00. I could have gotten things cheaper from the internet but then I would have to pay shipping. So in my case it all worked out for about the same price.

No you will have to go to a fish store that specialize in saltwater tanks and fish or you can order the stuff online and hope you can get free shipping. Alot of stores online offer free shipping if you buy a large amount.

Get on Craigslist and search in all for sale and pets for equipment.. most reefers use CL reliqiously and you will find amazing deals. Right now I'm waiting on a call back on CL for a 75 full setup with stand and a 72bowfront full setup with stand for $150 all together

@Mrc8858 that's a really good deal. I wish I could find deals around Atlanta for that price usually when full setups are that cheap here they are more trouble then they are worth.
