Welcome! do you have a tank size in mind? The important purchases for the salty side are a good RODI unit, a refractometer and making sure you have good lights and flow. Itís cheaper in the long run to be able to turn them down instead of having to buy new.

Hi everyone!!  I have a 65 set up, with RODI water, live sand and dry rock. I set up  the tank on August 18th, so going on 2 months.  No live stock as of yet, but starting to look around!

I'm using Omega Sea, and just the light strip that came with the tank at the moment. Trying to get live rock at the moment, then some clean up crew a week after that. Hopefully a fish or two by Thanksgiving!

live rock is fun. who knew how much life was hiding in it! i bought customer exchanged LR at my fish store and watched it to see what it revealed. pods, filter feeders, sponges, worms, starfish, cool stuff in my view.
