Starting first saltwater tank

Postby [Phishman] » Fri Mar 13, 2015 3:06 pm

Hello, I've never done a saltwater tank and I have a little tank id like to have for a reef setup. I've recent made a 10g sump filter with a pump drip tray with the bioballs and all that. My question is, would I need to modify the filter at all? If so how. And what else would I need to support maybe a clownfish. And love rock. Thanks guys

What are the dimensions of the tank? For marine it's usually a good idea to have a skimmer.
125G Borleyi, Multipunctata
75G Demasoni, Msobo, Lucipinnis
75G Calvus, Similis, Petricola

I have one of those little generic 10g tanks idk the dimensions exaxtly. But if thats too small I have a 29g tall. I'd like to do this as cheap as possible but make it safe for the fish.

One thing Marine is.....not so cheap. Try the Reef Central forum. Great info there. You can read about a nano set up.

Welcome, and happy SW tank!

It's not so expensive if you focus on low cost.
