Hi!
It would be best if you started your own thread in the saltwater getting started section. You will get some better answers over there.

Mumma- I think I'm going to use some really thin fishing line, or possibly just some sewing thread, since I have some lying around the house. Can't wait till my driftwood is ready!

Fishing line will work great If the wood is still leeching tannin it's still fine to add to the tank. Unless your water I quite soft (will cause pH to drop slightly) it won't do anything besides turn your water a tea color. The last bit of wood I added to a tank was scrubbed and put through the dishwasher to kill bugs (was collected from creek) then weighed down with slate and chucked in the tank. No pre soaking.

I noticed that my submersible heater makes a "clicking" or "knocking" noise when it turns on. Not sure if it happens ALL the time when it's on. Does anyone know what this is?

Sort like a 'tick' of a clock? All mine do that when they turn on and off.

so you only hear this noise twice, once when it turns on and once when it turns off? I think mine makes noise while it's on and then stops when it's off. I'm thinking about getting a new heater as a backup though, just in case the one I have decides to stop working on me. Any suggestions on brands/models for my 36g? Something not too expensive.

Mmm not too sure that's good. I new heater might be a good idea. I have cheap ones on all my tanks except my 70g. It has a hydor submersible and I love it. Maybe see if you can return the faulty one.

Not sure if it's faulty, or just really noisy haha. It has been maintaining a steady temp. of 85-86F over the past 2 days so I assume it's working fine.

Since I don't want to risk it breaking on me though, I'll probably invest in a new heater in the next couple days or so. I did a bit of research and am leaning towards getting a Eheim Jager for about $30. People seem to have little to no problems with these.
