Salinity 1.020

.01 down each day.

So far so good.

I hate moving live rock its soooo not fun.

Got the tank new filter pads and heater with hood and coral life t8 for $20.00.

I love craigslist!

Total set up time: 46min

100% display tank water in QT tank. Temp is the same and i took bio balls from mu canister and tucked them in the back of the hang on filter.

This will be a Hypo tank with water changes as stated in the research i have done.

Looks good to me. Just keep an eye on ammonia levels. Feed extremely sparingly.

The hiding place as recommended do not use live rock. This has been be able to scrub clean in freshwater. Put back in same position for there comfort.

From what I understand (and what we did yesterday) you don't have to gradually decrease salinity. Going in reverse, to increase salinity later - yes you have to take it slow.
We put a Banggai, Hi Fin banded goby & a Green Clown goby into 1.010 yesterday after a drip acclimation only. Everyone's fine this morning.
My hiding spot is only a little more effort than yours. I raided the recycle bin for a plastic jar (vitamins or something) & cut it in half vertically. TWO hiding spots. ;-)
