Current FTS. I think I will keep the "two islands" scape idea...
Picked up 11.75 pounds of base rock today!
Updated total cost: $160.96

4 days and still holding water... thumbs2:
I have decided to go for the 29 for sure. If I decide that I can't trust this particular tank I will hit up Petco's next $1/gal sale...

Not so sure if I trust the 29. It made some strange noises as I was cleaning it. Almost a creaking type noise. I'm currently leak testing it on my patio, but I'm not sure I can live with the fear of...

Well, a third powerhead certainly won't break the bank... might go for the 425 nano.

Yes it's an aquarium. Will the 2 koralia 240"s be enough flow? I am considering adding an AC HOB filter as well...

So after finding a larger tank by our dumpsters to house my tree frog, I now have the 29 gallon tank that the frog was in empty and available. At this point I suppose it would be easy to swap the 29...

Yeah... one step closer... :18:

Picked up 2 10lb bags of aragonite for $9.50 each today. I think 1 bag will be enough, that gives me roughly 3/4" sand depth.
Total spent so far= $111.50
Might sell... might not. Don't know til you try...
I have a feeling you will find a way to make the $$ you need to get into saltwater! Good luck!!

I will certainly try not to mess up... Stay tuned for updates...

Amazon says my powerheads have been delivered...
I would think it would take a looong time to make $600 selling shrimp and moss... Maybe something like yardwork (mowing lawns, raking leaves, etc.) would get you there faster.
I know it stinks...

Powerheads should be here Friday...
I would like this to eventually be a "zoa garden", and would appreciate tips from experienced salties on planning the tank accordingly... Thanks!!

I had a gut feeling the substrate wouldn't work. Now I also have practical reasons to back it up. Thanks guys!!
Not sure on the source for LR... gotta get more supplies first before I'm ready for...

Here's a shot of the tank I will be using:
I think I already know the answer to this question, but I'm gonna ask anyway: I have a bunch of african cichlid substrate... that won't work in...

It officially starts today... I have placed an order for 2 koralia powerheads. Using my 20 long tank. Starting out fowlr, eventually gonna go reef.
Progress will be slow for a while, can't afford...

I voted money. Did research, bought books, magazines, etc... Started pricing equipment, decided it just wouldn't fit into the budget right now...
Thanks!! So much fun watching these little guys grow up!!
Uploading a video update now... Tank and fish are doing great!
Check out the saltwater section here... lots of good info.
Here's one thread with tons of info... http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aquariumforum/showthread.php?t=116316
Gonna be home alone this weekend so I will start (and hopefully finish) the stand. Things should really start to get going once my tax returns come in...
Any recommendations on salt mixes?
Still liking the remora nano. With the 1200 pump it's 295 gph. Can I shoot for 300 gph thru the sump with the 3/4" drain (400 gph)?
