Got my tank, preparing everything to set the new one up but have a question.....
The undergravel filter? I know it serves no purpose in a SW
tank, BUT, can I use the plates themselves to keep the rock off the bottom of the tank and if so do I put any sand under the grates or just straight on the bottom?
Got my 55 gal
up and running, 0 ammonia and 0 nitrates so maybe tomorrow I'll start putting the LR
from the main into it. (then comes the fun part, chasing the little fishies around the tank for hours
I've got my new sand washed, letting it dry in containers in my out building (at almost 100 degrees it should not take long).
I will salvage some of the existing sand from the tank (maybe the first inch or so) and then I'll wash the left over sand and left it dry for storage.
Have I left anythign out?
