Ok so week one of setting up at my saltwater tank..and i have quite a few question..some may seem dumb, but they're just thoughts on a few things.
1. I live in SW
Florida..why cant i use Water from the ocean to fill my tank? The waters pretty clean here.
2. Why cant i just scrape up 25 lbs. of sand from the ocean floor ( about 15 yds off shore obviously)
3. Whats the difference between the base rock all our LFS
's have and the kind i can get laying apon the beach (after proper cleaning of course)
I'll be asking more later..of course as soon as i started typing my mind went blank!
And guys im not asking if it's illegal to tank sand, rock, and water. I'm a criminal just major, and i know it is. (although im not sure they would bother you about water! lol) I'm asking why cant you use these natural resources, again BESIDES THE FACT THEY'RE ILLEGAL TO HARVEST! lol
it just seems so dumb so me that i spend around 100 dollars on rock and sand so far yet, live 8 miles from the ocean, expecially when i have pretty clean water on our beaches!
thanks in advance guys!
