I second Careys statement, they have temp settings on them so even though during the summer days you may not need them, they will kick on throughout the night and stabilize the temp if it drops below your preset. I even have one on my 20g , gotta buy a new one for the 125 because one blew up

So long as you have good parameters and lighting, after a few months you can put in a $10 frag of mushrooms or zoanthids or whatever and see how it goes.

Okay then, I'll get a heater as well but maybe during or maybe even after cycling because I would want a good one. Would that be okay? Also is there any way to transform a desk into a tank stand?

es its physically possible but not likely, the majority of common computer desks are made of particle board, not exactly the best material when it comes to aquariums. I would just either keep your eyes open for a used one on here or cl or perhaps build a basic one
*edit***
Crap I gotta pay better attention, if its an actual desk made out of solid wood, yes you could prob use it, if its a computer desk, follow what I said above.....only problem I've experienced is that desks usually aren't built with weight-bearing in mind. A 40b is roughly 350 lbs and that's just water, not including lr sand and tank weight....so I'd be careful

Not too good. I was hoping on saltwater but my mother stopped it after she looked at some of the prices and told me not going to happen while I'll live under her roof... So I switches to freshwater and I have almost everything, besides a working filter... It's pretty sad to see it all up but with nothing in it! Thanks for asking though! It's nice to hear from people in the salty side of things, wish I could be there

Awesome, no rush!
Freshwater is exciting and rewarding as well
Someday you'll taste the saltwater side of things
