I wish it would stay that cool here! Mid-50's sounds so nice right now... It's supposed to be 95 tomorrow, with 80% humidity! I miss the snow already.

Welcome to AA!
How big is your nano setup? Buy a hydrometer or a refractometer to measure the salt level aka specific gravity. if you plan on keeping corals make your salinity 1.025. for just fish and live rock you can get away with a bigger ranger... from 1.021-1.026 is ok.

add your live rock to cycle and check to see your ammonia levels spike and nitrates build up. if you are using fully cured live rock and sand you may never see this spike (which is what happened to me). either way i let it do its thing for like 2 weeks before adding anything besides rock and sand and water.

Hi Mark3284, and a huge warm welcome "from accross the pond!".

Here in sunny Florida (USA) it's 80 degrees.

Good luck with the project, and again welcome.

Bob R

mark it should give you some sort of approximation on your salt mix i think. if not eye ball it and then keep measuring until you get it right. for the things you want, aim for 1.025. remember not to add any live rock until you have your salt correct as there are little sensitive creatures on there that cant live without the salt water.

You don't know how much I wish for that!! Ever since I was in elementary school, and we had a huge project that allowed me to study Australia, I have always said that if I had the chance to move to another country, it would be there! I just know I could pick up the accent in no time too!
