I just wanted to say hi to everyone out there. This site has been of great help already in most of my choices so far. I had been thinking of getting an aquarium, and looked into & researched what is really involved. Granted I have 2 friends with salt tanks and just awesome to view, and I see a little of the behind the scenes actions. They both offered to help me with salt set up and I was just not ready for that...sooooo I watched CL
and found what I was after, 30g AC70 metal stand (not my preface but o well)hood and light all like new at a Very nice price. The rest of my items from LFS
(see already learning..lol)
Ok, now it is filled last evening (8/19) water original ph is on the 7.5-7.7 range out of the tap. I have wood in the tank so will see what it is tonight.
I did put the dechlorinator in yesterday after pump and heater ran a bit.
I will start the cycle fishless with the ace ammonia....
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the questions and answers I have already read. A lot of good info digested. Just one more decision.....who will be my new friends
...lol..got a few weeks of cycle to finalize those choices.
