Wont be too bad... Salt is not that exp if you buy in bulk. But that is far enough down the road anyways.

It will be home to my freshies for a bit. Well until they pass away. They have outgrown the 125g that they are in. They are over 10 years old. I dont think they will live many more years, then im going to move my reef over to this tank. :0)

Right now I do a 30 gallon trash can on my saltwater tank and that is about 15 bucks worth of salt from what I figure.

I dunno if I believe it or not, but I read somewhere that If you have the right stuff in your sump you dont need to do water changes?

I thought the salt mix provided certain things to the water tho.. IDK

IF you set it up right you can get away with next to no water changes....but if you go reef you'd have to dose.. Look up hiatt filtration.... I personally don't think its healthy but its interesting

100% silicone right? Long as it don't have mold preventer or whatever right?
Out of experience I can only tell you to do all the seals, not only the two front ones! It might be a lot more work but fresh silicon doesn't stick well to dried silicon and I can't even start to imagine 250g of water in the living room! I had a 55g give up on me and that was already a mess I'll never forget! Anyways, I'm in

Yes, he's right, you need to redo the whole thing
