I've researched this for a good 2 years in anticipation of beginning, but now that I have the nanocube home (still in the box I might add), I seem to have forgotten everything. lol. I guess I am scared of screwing something up and wasting money. SO... My plan is to get live rock from my LFS
. I plan on about 12-15 pounds. I also have a bag of live sand that is 20 pounds.
The live rock that I am getting is actually in their tank already, so should I add it and then the sand, or sand first? I plan on giving the tank a minimum of two weeks for cycling before I even try to add anything.
Is this a good plan for now?
what else do I need to get that I may be forgetting?
thanks!! Im paranoid because of my fish only saltwater tank that crashed and burned 3 years ago. Haven't tried to touch saltwater since, and never done a reef.
