Hello everyone, since I'm going to college, so still living at home, and finally talked my parents into getting an aquarium since I'm too poor ATM to get a big one like I want haha.
I'll be helping them out with it along the way, setting it up, maintenance etc... so I figured since I'm helpin with the tank, I would start a thread on here to track the progress of it.
It's a 75 gallon (as stated in the title) bowfront. Don't have any pics ATM, as it was just purchased while I'm at work
This is my first steps into salt water as the title said too, so I may have some questions, but I WILL BE DOING RESEARCH on my own, then coming here if something is unclear.
Just got off the phone with him, included in what he bought:
- Lighting Fixture (Holds up to 6 bulbs, built in timer, and bulbs)
- Return Pump
- Live Sand
So far he said about $2000 US. Not sure on brands, but knowing my dad, he is not afraid of and does the whole "give me the best", and the LFS are pretty honest and truly does give the best, even if its not the most expensive. I'll update with brands soon, as well as pics, setting it up tonight after I get home from work.
I know its a while off, but for a first timer, what are some fish, invertabrates and coral that you reccomend? Also, what other advice do you have to offer it setting this up? and and all help appreciated.
Well, back to work, will get some pics up here tonight, or in the next few days.
