Well I am getting close to staring my FOWLR
that will become a reef tank, and yes fishless cycle!
The only thing that hasn't lived up is the tank size, sorry. I am going to stay with a 29 because of my apt(mainly), stand, canopy....I am bought a new 29 because I used copper in the freshie. I plan to upgrade when I move and transfer. All equip should be good for bigger tank except light and more LR
I just wanted to check with you all to show what I have cuurently purchased, and what I still need. Most was purchase from Dr. Fosters, skimmer/heater from Marine depot. Same skimmer for $79 was $179 at LFS
. I dont want to add up all I spent until I get LR
1 refractometer+hydrometer to check
1 Coralife CSS 65 skimmer
6 clean 5 gal
buckets with lid.
1 Marine Lab test kit
1 30 lb bag of Carib-Sea sugar sized reef sand
2 50 gal
bags of IO salt(not sure about this for corals? Can I switch when I am ready as long as salinity is the same?
1 coralife dig temp thermometer
1 200 watt titanium heater
1 new 29 gal
, stand, canopy
What I need:
light ( Need good suggestion/best price for money/not to limiting)
45lbs of LR
1 raw shrimp
Anything else? Should I get reef/calcium stuff? I know I have to wait for corals/fish
