Here's my plans so far for my SW
tank. I haven't bought the skimmer yet so please lemme know if it'll do the job or if there is a better one I should look into getting. Definetly looking at a hang-on, since there will be no sump/plumbing.
29 Gallon Tank
#25lbs of Southdown Sand
#? Live Rock
CPR bakpak II skimmer
Won Pro-Heat Titanium 200watt Heater w/ easy temp control
This would be a FOWLR
Now I had the tank, put in the southdown sand and filled with water. And that's where im out now, haven't added salt yet. The water is milky/clouded even after 24 hours. If the water doesn't clear, then I may just drain it take the sand out and start again with a different substrate. Everyone I had talked too tho, said the southdown would work fine and that the liverock would easily seed it too become live sand.
