Nice! I'm glad to hear its working. Good idea about the mesh screen too.

Yeah when you get to the stage where you get your sw tank set up. I personally would set up this mini fuge up when you start cycling. Just for good measure.

There was 29 gal saltwater setup on craigslist for $125... I really wanted to go buy it. I'm having a hard enough time keeping fish alive in my temp freshwater tank. I thought reef tanks were supposed to be hard! Anyway, I am HOPEFULLY going to make a purchase towards my saltwater dream this weekend. . I'll let y'all know if I do!

That 29 would be a decent start to the tank you have. Don't just get it though because its a good deal. Make sure its what you really want. I have my 29 on craigslist for 400 and that's a steal I have over 1500 into between the hardware and livestock. That's not even counting the 45lbs of rock

Good luck with the jump to saltwater, I remember being so stoked when I crossed over Lol (Not with John Edwards)! If you do the used tank, and you are planning a reef, make sure they never used copper in the system. Copper will kill your reef
