    Default Travie's Saltwater Tank(s)

    0 Not allowed!
    I have been in the process of acquiring the equipment for a saltwater tank over the past month. I finally started to set it up yesterday. It is going to start out as a 10 gallon tank. Then eventually go to a 29 gallon or 55 gallon with the 10 remaining to be a salt mixing, QT, and hospital tank.

    Around 17 pounds of live rock
    100 watt Hydro Heater
    RO water
    Coralife Marine Salt(Will probably change to Red Sea Coral Pro Salt)
    Ocean Direct Caribbean Live Sand
    No Protein Skimmer for now(Will get one eventually)
    Maxi-Jet 900 Powerhead(Will get Hydro Koralia wavemaker eventually)

    Plans for Livestock in the 10 gallon:
    Goby of some kind
    Hermit Crabs

    Tonight I plan to get the tank full of saltwater. Get it to the desirable salinity and get the temperature set where I would like.

    Please offer suggestions and comments as I go along.
