Also, forget the 5g buckets for mixing water. Go out to home depot and get some 30g trash cans. You should get 3. One for mixing water, one for taking water to dump from the tank and one for reserve. Do you have an RO
unit to make water because tap water is going to,mess you up big time on your water parameters. Just an observation from a large tank owner, we have a 180g and a 54g.
