Hi there everyone! Lookin' to start SW!
My name is Ryan and I have had freshwater tanks for the last 10 years but never even thought of doing any salt water for how tough it seems to maintain. Well I am a manger at petsmart and i'm sure everyone has already heard of marinelands recalled heaters. We were instructed to remove all heaters from our shelves and also check inside all of our aquarium kits to see which heaters were included in the kit. Well anyways, we were instructed to discount any kits that included the recalled heaters because they no longer contained a heater inside the kit. Sooo, I managed to score a 55 gallon marineland LED kit for a rather nice price and I am thinking about trying my first saltwater tank with it! I know that as far as filter and lighting it comes with is not going to work for saltwater but I got the kit for cheaper than most people sell used 55 gal tanks by themselves. I am trying to figure out how much it would cost roughly as well as what exactly would be needed (filters, heaters, lighting, etc.) to start this baby off as a SW tank. If anybody could help me out I would very much appreciate it!
