Moving into saltwater

Greetings AA,

After lurking for a couple of weeks, I finally registered, and now my first post.

I am a biology teacher in the Chicagoland area, and I have a fair amount of experience with freshwater systems in my classroom. I have a 55g with many Illinois natives--largemouth bass, bluegill, bullhead, snails, crayfish. I also have a zebrafish housing system which is home to several hundred danios in many varieties--wild type, albino, blue, leopard, red/green/orange/blue fluorescent. I use the danios in my instruction because of their widespread use in biological research.

I just moved into a new home, and the previous owner has a built-in for a huge tank. I am looking to put in saltwater tank in this location. I am currently working with the previous owner to buy much of his equipment. Looks like it was 110g, but I don't know much else yet. I will definitely update my profile as I accumulate equipment. I will probably need guidance, and look forward to chatting with you all.

Welcome to AA! I look forward to seeing your build.

Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....
