I've decided to take the plunge into a SW
aquarium and have some questions.
My plans are to start with a 80-100 gal
aquarium with LR
But, Ive read on multiple sites that a rookie aquarist shouldnt do LR
until they are more comfortable with a SW
setup. From what Ive read here it is suggested that you nurture the cycling along with LR
, and LS
. Does that apply to experienced sw
tank owners, or everyone?
Also, as school is about to start, and I will no longer be working full time, I will be limited on funds. What are the essentials for a SW
aquarium that must be in place before you can stock it?
I've seen several complete, ready to go used systems in newspapers, is buying used sw
equipment a bad thing? I dont want to say Im being lazy, but in a way I am. I unfortuantely wont have the time/money to setup a DYI sump, filtering system etc, so at this point its the best choice for me.
Any information you could provide this rookie would be greatly appreciated.
also, if anyone in so-cal, central cal, or lower nor cal has any used equipment for sale, let me know
