    I'm looking forward to seeing pics

    Just a word of warning tho, your corasl likely won't do to well (as well as the could) and it will be more difficult to keep your parameters stable with a salinity that low. Natural sea water is 1.027, so at 1.022, you are very low. I would suggest keeping it between 1.025 and 1.026. That will help a lot and give you a little flexability if you get some evaporation.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    will try to increase my my salinity. I tried off by used the petco natural saltwater, when i was just that it readin about 1.023. since then i added about gal of distilled water which i can see how i got down to 1.022. Is it okay if i use distilled water right from my grocery store? not sure if i want to get a ro/di setup yet. been looking at 160 dollar one by coralife that is 4 stages.
