perfect, thank you so much. Anything I else I need to know/buy?
There is so much to know/learn... always, because the hobby is constantly evolving and there are so, SO many aspects to it. I'm not great with expanding on general questions so I highly suggest reading these.aquanerd13 said:perfect, thank you so much. Anything I else I need to know/buy?

Either Craigslist or see if your LFS deals with used setups. A used reef ready setup would save you lots of money (I went this route with my 90 gallon, my LFS found the setup for me). Be sure to check for scratches and leaks though. You don't want a tank that looks like this:aquanerd13 said:I definitely want a reef tank. After seeing those pictures, I was like 'and why am I not doing this?'
Where could I get a pre-drilled tank? Is craigslist a good option?
Most people start of with dry reef rock and sand but it is acceptable to use live rock if you take the proper precautions but I recommend going with dry rock since it really is the safest way for a beginner to start a tank.aquanerd13 said:
It's good, but I prefer live sand. So I personally would go with the first or third link Tony_097 provided, but since you're on a budget I see no problem with plain sand and letting it become live.aquanerd13 said:Ok, thank you. Sand it is then.
How is this stuff?
