I have another question! Lol.


I was wondering if I have to get all 150lbs before I get fish, or can I slowly add on to the rock amount? Thanks

Sorry if all of this sounds confusing!

If you plan on adding just base rock, yep, you can add that after you have fish and anytime you want more rock.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Awesome, so I will just use my leftover money to buy all LR now, and then I will save up and add pieces of dry rock along the way. Thanks!

Just a few quick questions.

So, my two Koralias are schedualed for delivery today, but I am not sure that my other equipment will come (sump, aqualifters). C

1. Could I add live rock and sand today with just the powerheads running?

2. Since there wouldn't be anything in the tank when I put the water in, can I just put FW in the tank, and then mix the salt for it?

Thanks!

Yep, you can put all your stuff that you have in, the powerheads will be just fine. And yes, you can mix the salt in the tank this one time. I did it in my 90g

Ok, just making sure.

For plumbing I will need two a 3ft long 3/4 inch airline tubing to bring the water to the sump from the overflow (because there are two holes on the bottom of the overflow).

Then I will need some tubing to bring it back up. Then I need a ball valve and a check valve.

What should I use to bring the water up again? I looked but I can't find it, lol.

Thanks!!

Can ich travel on LR? The reason I ask is because my LFS may have had a fish that had ich in the system where the LR is.

Thanks!
