    One think I am a little confused by is what salinity a tank should be set to?

    I have seen that in one of your stickies, you say that most people set there tanks to 1.026 salinity, but on liveaquaria, for most of there marine fish, it says sg 1.020-1.025. And at Preuss Pets (my LFS) they said that the correct salinity is 1.025.

    Natural sea water is 1.0264, to quote Randy Holmes-Farley

    The lowest I would have my salinity in any marine tank is 1.025.

    When in doubt, match natural sea water and you can not go wrong
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Oh, forgot to add, I talked to a Pruess employee on Sunday, they said they can drill any tank for $15. I figure I can get it drilled there and if they break it, they pay for it.

    Just make sure you have planned your flow rates before getting the tank drilled.

    Once you know how much flow you'll need, you will know what size of pipe to use and what size of bulk head flange you will need.

    Ozonizer/UV sterilizer
    Do a quick google search and you can find a lot... it's amazing lol it purifies water using ozone which kills bacteria in it...

    I'd go with RO/DI filter though, that's how most people purify their water in the hobby
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank
