I would actually check out the Saltwater Pics and Vids section here at TFK. There are a lot of builds on there that can be very helpful and step-by-step. Check out Princesuhaib's 75g Build. I know it's a 75 gallon build, but the premise is about the same. Any other questions, don't be afraid to post...

Thanks!!

Actually I found something right near what I want to do... http://saltaquarium.about.com/od/sta...0gminireef.htm I want to do a mini like this w/o corals but w/the live rock and sand... not EXACTLY like they did it here but close. Gave me a better idea on how to set up equipment, etc. (I want more live rock... etc... their tank looks way too bare and not enough hidey holes.)

This is down the road a lil for me... my sister is giving me her 5g eclipse hex and I planned out how to distribute my freshwater fish between the 5g & my 55g that actually works out pretty well! (figured out on aqadvisor) So I want to dabble in saltwater and convert my 10g similar to that link.
