Hey guys. Cleaned out the old 20 gallon FW
tank and decided to make a SW
and fish. I went to the lfs
and he loaded me up on the sand ( agrag alive sand, 40 pounds) also bought some Live rock (about 4 pounds of it) and some other coral rock that wasnt live. Ended up gettng water from their tank that had been up and running with fish in for a while (same water the fish I got were in) and brought it all home and set it up. the tank looks pretty good and the sand settled really fast. I do think I need some more live rock, but at the prices that they want (9.00 per pound), Ill order it from somewhere.
What else do I need for this tank? The guy at the lfs
said to do NO
water changes for about 6 weeks and only add after evaporation. Is there anything I need to know other than what he has told me? Oh, he also gave me some crabs and shells from their crab tank. Is there anything else I need to get? How many fish can I put in this tank?
I only have a clown fish and a small yellow tang in the tank now. Anything else I need to know or do?
Sorry for the dumb questions, but Im wanting to do this one right.
