Planning mode is always fun! Plus you can get your information together and go in knowing what you need to.

Add a good liquid test kit to your list and if possible a refractometer instead of the hydrometer swing arm for salinity. I know here in the states they are about $30 on ebay. You'd be amazed at how inaccurate the swing arms are. Mine was at least .04 off so I was reading 1.023 and I was really at 1.027.

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

I was going to set up a tank in Feb but was delayed I already bought a Skimmer, Refractometer and some instant ocean salt all I need is to get a diff tank, live / base rock, sand, RO unit some buckets and a powerhead and I'm good to go. Yes planning is the way, I wouldn't rush into it if I do something it has to be done properly
