    Well, here it is! tank two in progress.

    Went to my lfs picked up an identical tank and stand as my FW planted setup and now i'm about to start a reef tank!

    It's gonna take a few paychecks to get everything i need but hopefully it'll all come together nicely

    I picked up 40gallon breeder tank and sand
    Fluval M 150watt heater
    40lbs of caribsea aragalive
    15lbs of instant ocean reef salt

    Here are some pics!







    Next check i should be getting my reef octopus hob protein skimmer, gfo reactor, carbon reactor, and hydor korlia pumps. The check after wil be the aquaticlife quad bulb t5ho!

    I'll be off to pick up more and more as i can afford it!

    Looks like your off to a good start

    Are you planning to get live or live & dry rock to cycle your tank ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    im on a tight budget right now. I just purchased a small piece of live rock. Im gonna begin to cycle with this piece and then next paycheck im gonna add a few more pieces of live, and probably some dry too. I have plenty of time to cycle as its gonna take me a few paychecks to get all of the equipment i want.

    did a few more things today. Stopped at the lfs to pic up some chemipure, purple up a hydrometer and a background!


    stuff from lfs.




    patience...lots of patience for this....



    added the substrate!




    After the substrate i filled it up, added salt a hob running chemipure for temp filtration, a small piece of live rock and a heater. Also a circulation pump.

    I'll post pics when it clears up.

    here is a pic of the tank full and the one piece of live rock. In about two weeks i'm going to order some more equipment, fill it with dry rock and begin the curing/cycling process.







    upon inspecting my live rock, i found this little guy which i thought was cool





    alas i also found this guy, treated him right away with aiptasia x
