College students with saltwater tanks?
Hello. I am in college and I am trying to meet other college kids who also have a saltwater tank with them! Let me know what type of tank you have etc.

Should be fun as hell to start it out though.
of course. from what i know from reading and talking to people at pet stores, i need a good wet/dry filter, a good heater, a protein skimmer, and good lights. To set up the tank, mix the saltwater and let it dissolve for a day or two, check my parameters, then add live sand and rock, let that cycle for a month or two, then quarantine and acclimate the fish for 2-4 weeks at a time.
