Setting uo my first SW tank...
 
So I finally took the plunge...I am converting my 55 gallon freshwater to saltwater. I live in Okinawa for the time being so I went to the ocean for my live rock, I hope it works out a lot of people have an opinion if live rock straight from the ocean will work.

Here is the former freshwater set up:

This the the filter I bought, I don't know what it says on the box except it can filter up to 270 liters.
