90 gallon start

After having a bad string of luck recently i got some lucky news and found a guy giving away a 90 gallon and everything with it! FOR FREE! so i've decided to setup a nice saltwater aquarium for the house. Lets hope it goes well.

Nice! Make sure you test it for leaks.

Planned on it. Guy said he kept a reef system for 16 years, sadly a snow storm knocked out his power for about 5 days and killed off everything.

Really? That killed EVERYTHING? Thats weird..... Ive heard of people who have kept sharks alive for 3 weeks..... IF that happens to you stir the water every hour to make sure it doesnt go stagnant. Or just get a generator.

SWEET pickup dude!

I'm also curious as well on what you're going to stock this with. Is it going to be a FOWLR or reef?

I plan on taking care of this tank like my life depends on it! At the moment my plan is fish and live rock and when i make a little more money hopefully start into corals. What fish i'll have is still a mystery, sadly still waiting a week in order to get the tank.

If you can return the hydrometer, I would. Check out a refractometer on eBay- don't have the link at the moment, but it's like $30 shipped and 100x better than hydrometer.
