i would do saltwater.

brown in good in your tank so your coming along. it seems like on my tanks that ive set up brown was always in the beginning then its gone. if you feel your testes are alil wishy washy, it would be interesting to see a comparison.

Patience, patience...the time will come! It's really worth all the waiting in the end. You'll see.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

waiting sucks. it took me months, months i tell you, to get just my sump to the point where i could even run water though it. and it still needs a fuge light and macro.

and all the stocking that i want to do in the dt is probably 6-10 months out too. i feel your pain.

My 2nd 125 I ma do a sump and fuge on, haven't started planning on that yet the base of the acrylic tank is set up as a fuge but I think it would be too much weight for the floor an would have to move it to the basement
