getting back into

it has been a while since my last 165 gallon fish only salt water tank, I lost all my fish to TB and had to destroy all my equipment about 10 years ago.
So I happened to be going to work and found a 55gallon and a aqua clear wet dry in the garbage so if its free its for me and it dosent leak either.
next I went to marine reef and ordered some lighting pump wave maker test kit and hydrometer.
Then I used your DIY to make my own tank stand and canopy with a few mods. it need to look furniture so my wife would gom for it. I have been doing a lot of reading on this site, because i am attempting to do fowr tank so any oinfo will be help full.

thanks for everything

Hi Chris,

Can't help you with the salty stuff but just want to welcome you back to the fish obsession and welcome to the forum too. There are plenty of salties here to chat with.

Good luck and post some pics. when you get them.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Hi Chris, welcome to TFK! I also know nothing about S/W but plenty of other people here do.
Looking forward to any pics you care to share. Traffic Light guy?? Do you build, maintain or just run the reds??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

hello and welcome.
the saltie people here are great,and i'm sure they'll be able
to help with everything you need.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
