I was like 8, and made one of those stupid ping-pong balls into a fish bowl. That little sucker lasted for like 2 years! That was my first attempt.
A little older now, and have a little more money hah. I was thinking about a FW
tank at first, but after seeing the pictures of the reef tanks I can't talk myself out of it. I've been trying to find a LFS
in Orange County but can't... Anyone know of any?
I'm sitting on a HOB
filter, which I can still use, a heater that will work, and a pump that might not have a use... the gravel is useless, the UGF
was a waste to begin with, oh well. All of this is attempting a FW
cycle in my 20 gal
I've read around on LS
, and all the other fun stuff that's going to be required to make this work. Since I only need 30 lbs of LR
, and I think I could get away with just 10 lbs of LR
and some patience, I'd hate to pay as much for the shipping as I would the LR
from liverock.com, or liverocks.com... whichever it is. Add a few power heads and I think I'm close.
So that's where I'm at... in desperate need of a LFS
in OC and still searching for a checklist of sorts that would show everything required for a full tank.
The idea is to get most of the pain and suffering out of the way on thie 20 gal
so when I get the 100 I have something to seed it with. At least that's the plan at the moment, the more I read the more my plans change!
Oh yeah, Hello! And thanks for the great resource!!!
