Hello, I am wanting to give saltwater a try. Just wondering if there is anyone on here with SW tanks that may have some things I'm looking for. Plans are 30-40G with 15G sump. In no rush to add a bunch of living things but would like to get something full of water and cycling for months first. I will be upgrading my current 15G pleco/tetra tank to a 30G very soon and will then have the old 15G to use as a sump. I'm huge on DIY and doing things for as cheap as possible without hot glue and duct tape Some current general info on SW would be great. cheapest salt, best dry rock, I will want to seed the tank with Coralline algea/Copepods/Chaetomorpha in sump if anyone has this stuff in there tank. Thanks
Hello to all my felow albertains, hope you all enjoyed the gold medal game this am. Im fairly new to the hobby, as i was given a nice set up. Enjoy freshwater but last year started a saltwater reef. The two things that i enjoy the most is the set up/fine tuning they set up & the vast research that is needed and available on line. When it comes to the set up i enjoy all aspects from selecting the equipment, the actual set up, some smal DIY projects to the aquascaping/stocking of a set up. As for the research, i like a lot of the forums such as Nano Reef, as its a great way to get advice and ideas for my set ups. I wanted to join something local as up here we have our own issues and solutions. I do find that we all, including myself have an opinion and love to hear others. The biggest problem with being up here in the hobby is finding hardware & stocking my tanks. It is an expensive hobby, we dont have that much selection and and Kijiji, which is a great way to buy & sell, is filled with people who are sometimes a bit out to lunch. My goal is to meet some people, who like myself, enjoy the hobby, enjoy chatting about the hobby, have some great suggestions and find some good deals on products as well as buy/sell/trade livestock such as corals. I see in the US they have have shows, frag swaps, etc and think through a forum/comunity like ours we can do something like it. Looking forward to chatting with you all soon, Dean
