Right now I am the owner of an empty 30 gal tank that used to be fresh. I want to make this a salt water tank with live rock, live sand, and fish no coral (fowler i believe). many questions that my pet store has taken me in circles with...
first off if I am doing the live rock I need approx 30LBS? but how much live sand? is all this too much live?
Secondly with the live rock and sand is a filter necessary? or just a skimmer?
thirdly besides those items do i need a power head or anything else of equipment?
can a heater and chiller run be hooked up at the same time?
any help would be soo appreciated!! thanks in advance!
