Found a guy on craigslist giving a way a complete set up including 1 clown fish for FREE! Picking it up today, I am ...
no saline solution!!!!!!!! That's kinda funny though. Go to your local aquarium supply and get premix saltwater. Since this is your first I'm going to assume you don't have and RO/DI unit. Good luck... POST PICS
I'm about to upload a vid. Yeah, didn't think that you should use saline solution. Don't worry, I didn't :)
It's pretty basic. 10 gallons, gravel, few fake plants, filter...yeah, real basic. I'm going to end up changing it a lot once I have the extra cash to change gravel and decor. Not the prettiest set up in my eyes, lol!
He's doing great though! Such an active fish, love it! Video coming in a few.
nice fish!!! looks like you got a good deal and quite a project on your hands... i have a few questions for you..
1st what is running in that HOB filter? (they are really not the best choice for saltwater)
2nd what arethe long term plans for modification to the tank? a lot of detail if you wold be so kind....
3rd have you hit the articles section for out saltwater forums yet? they have a lot of great reading there to help get some of the basics down for long term success...
Ok, after reading I've decided the hob is going away lol. Can't go into much detail (typing this @ work on my phone) but I am planning on looking into protein skimmer, live sand, and live rock. There is a great lfs in my area that most likely carries all of that. Posted via Mobile Device
