I currently have 2 75 gallon FW
tanks and I'm want to convert one to SW
. Currently I have an 8" oscar with 4 silver dollars in one tank and in the other I have a community tank with mollies, guppies, platies and a 3 angles. The community tank is the one I'm thinking about converting to a SW
I've been doing a lot of reading and I've decided to go with the FOWLR
tank as this will give me a nice balance and I believe after a while I can expand and move on to a reef like setup. I currently have 2 AC
110's running, a 200w heater, and pool filter sand as the substrate. So far here is my plan and
120lbs rock (70lbs live, 50lbs base)
2 large rubbermaid tubs (for hold premixed SW
Pool Filter Sand (do I need to clean the sand again)
Standard 48" AGA strip
The question I have so far is:
1) Can I mix the saltwater in the tank, then add the rocks?
2) Should I clean the rocks, if so how? I plan on ordering http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=397
unless I can find it cheaper.
3) Will my lighting be enough for now? I want to make sure I get growth on the rocks, and in the future I'll upgrade if I decide to go with a reef setup
I just hoping I'm on the right track.
