Hello and Welcome!
I have been wanting to build a reef in my 55 gallon tank but I don't enough cash to start it. I was talking and was offered a great deal by a fellow member(bearwithfish) and thought why not. I wanted to get my feet wet and get used to SW.
I got a 10 gallon AIO tank that he made (Link to his thread: 10 gallon all in one
) With ~4lb of Live rock and some starting live sand along with some chaeto algae, a heater, and a powerhead. Again Thank you very much for the trade.
Right now I have a 1" sand bed, ~4 lb of LR, ~5-6 lb of base rock, and the chaeto(probably not the best idea since the tank got cloudy). The water I have is Petco real ocean water and will be Instant ocean water after I get my RO system(Monday). Here are some pics of what it looks like and I will be posting videos on my youtube channel hopefully every week either on Thursdays or Saturdays and whenever something new is in and the link is in my signature. And now for the whole reason people are on this thread...The pictures.
