hey guys I remember all of yall! been awhile since Ive been on here, been spending most of my time in Nano-Reef but that place has gone to the dogs lately
rinse that baby out good, copper is a big problem with some people when they switch from fresh to salt even if they didnt dose for it, ive seen a whole tank go under because of that.
ditch the gravel and decorations definitely, plan out how much rock you want to have as well as sand, make sure youll have necessary equipment including heaters, powerheads, lighting etc..I saw a 55g the other day with two 150w MH
pendants over it, looked beautiful......skimmer if you want alot of fish and want to keep more fragile things such as anemones, and decide of you want to run a sump/fuge for nutrient import/export and to take care of nitrates, so you can have your plumbing worked out before you fill it with water, dont want to flood the house!
good luck with the tank, im sure itll be awesome
