First 15Gal Build
Hey All,

My first saltwater 15 Gal setup.
Pic's from week 1, Still murky from the sand but my rocks are somewhat arranged.

Just introduced a chunk of raw shrimp to help cycle, 7lb of live rock, and 7lb or base.
1st Reading: Salinity - 1.023, Nitrite - 0, Nitrate - 0, Ammonia - .25, PH -8.2

Will post pictures of the progression.
Any comments or suggestions are welcomed!

nice tank i cannot wait to see how it progresses..... what are your short and long term plans if any? and as this is your build threa i would put all the info you can down so that as you make changes and swap things out you can show what roads you have chosen... just an idea.....
