You'll need a couple powerheads for flow, you'll want at least 10x the water turn over rate for a FOWLR tank.....Fish Only With Live Rock. So like 2 150gph powerheads should do ya.
Refractometer for measuring salt
Live Rock at least 1.5lbs per gallon
Crushed Coral or Live Sand
And off you go.
distiled water can work, but ive read they usually store it in copper tanks. copper in water will harm inverts.
Some R/O filters you can also stick on the sink nozzle, and leave it their for an hour or so to get some water ;)
Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
