Initial setup will be with salt water of your targetted SG. Do you have a hydrometer or preferably a refractometer?
I have neither yet. I haven't looked into pricing/availability at my store yet so I have not decided which I will purchase.
A week from this friday I get paid and goto my store to get some kind of substrate, Maybe five-ten pounds of LR
. A refractometer or hyrdromter and salt. I'm also gonna grab new supplies for my filter to make sure there is nothing transfering over from the last tank. During the next week I'm going to clean out my 10g with some bleach so its completely sterilized.
When cycling, assuming my other tanks is disease free (which to my knowledge it is) could I use the media to seed my salt tank or is that a bit risky?
