Well im back.
What I thought was just going to be a scouting trip turned into a purchase. I met a local guy thats not more than 2 miles from me that is just starting saltwater. He did not have any corals so he took as many of the corals as we could fit in his tank. He also got two icecap ballasts, 4 110W VHO
bulbs and a KENT RO
Im gonna give him $200 i think for the rock that he could not fit in his tank and the sand that was in the other guys tank. I think once the corals are growing well I can frag off a few of his for my tanks aswell.
All in all I enjoyed the day doing exactly what I wanted to do.
