tons and tons of questions
I am so excited and want to get into this hobby. I have read till my eyes are sore and there are so many contridictions of opions. It is getting confusing. I guess starting with the basics, am I safe to use bottled water that has been run thru reverse osmosis? The next very basic question is when it comes time to buy the live rock, we live about 2 hours from the store which we will buy it. Is there anything I should do to transport it ie, keeping it warm, or wet and how long when I bring it home do I have to get it into the tank. I will have to mix the water, add the sand and I wonder if I will damage the rock if I don't get it right into the tank.
Any hints would be greatly appreciated. I have a vision as to how I want to have the tank look and can't wait. I know move slowly and have patience. Hell, I am not getting younger and want to get it going but finances as slowing me down.
thanks in advance.
