Excited to be here. Have been a FW
enthusiast for many years now. Over the weekend lovely wife "suggested" we take our 29g tank and give a SW
setup a chance - heck ya!!
So here we are, over the weekend cleaned the once FW
tank (no chemicals of course!), filled with de-chlorinated water.... got temp steady at 78 degrees F, and after about 24 hours salinity pretty well dialed in at 1.025 Added 40lbs of live marine sand, and have left lighting (actinic bulb right now) turned off, in fact have a black blanket over the tank to help prevent any light causing unwanted algae bloom right away.
Have 25lbs or dry base rock on the way, as well as 15lbs of cured live rock.
Until the rock arrives, anything else I should be working on, testing, etc?
FYI, I read somewhere about leaving my filter media from FW
setup in place to help with cycling - thoughts on that????
