I am getting ready to start my first SW
tank after many years of freshwater experience!
I have a 55gl 4ft tank with a Cascade 1000 Canister filter that I plan to use to get started. This is what I've purchased so far:
2 600 gph
Hydor Koralia Evolution Circulation Pump/Powerhead
48"Aquatic Life LED
Aquarium Light Fixture
4 20lb bags of CaribSea Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite Aquarium Sand
5 gl bucket of Instant Ocean Aquarium Salt
API Saltwater Master Kit Testing Kit
and I'm going to buy 50 lbs of Live rock tomorrow so I can start my tank this weekend.
I know I probably want to get a Protein Skimmer but it is not in the budget to get started and I think I will be ok at the beginning so I plan to add it a few months down the road.
I have questions that will come soon enough since I am very much the Newbie!
