But whatever. It doesn't matter what anyone else says you're gonna do it regardless. Have fun
I asked my mom, she says if i have the money than i can do it but all i have right now is enough for the filtration, heating, and other supplys. I need some time to find a 40b for a good price, my lfs has a bunch of used tanks for cheap so i will have to search around there.

Here's a crazy thought. Why don't you just wait until april to get it?

If you were to wait then you'll have the money for everything and you can start off with all of the right equipment. Then things will run much smoother.

I agree ^ you are very impatient! Just wait til April to do it right the first time - you will be wasting your money, time and effort rushing into it now. I don't know about you all but the thought of moving or upgrading tanks is a nightmare to me! And your currently setting up a 60g reef? Is this your first saltwater tank? If so then why not make the 60 the lions home? No reef. No one has really mentioned it but power filters and canisters are not recommended for saltwater tanks, have a bit of a read of some of the articles on here about the different types of filtration for salt tanks. My one regret when setting up my 55 is not having it drilled for a sump. Research before rushing in!

No, this is not my first. I have a 37g mix reef aswell. Found out the the tanks are used for reptiles... I guess i wont be getting the lion. For christmas i am gonna get a 40b and start from there! Agree it would be stressful for me and the fish too. I will start a new thread once ive gotten the tank . Thanks for all your help!

It would have to be pretty big already so it doesn't get eaten, but at least they don't get much over a foot long as far as I have seen. I would have a few inches of sand in the bottom for it because they do like to burrow a bit.

What about an angler? They don't need much tank to do well and it would be a cool addition.
