Well it’s official! I will be SLOWLY making my way into the salty side. I have had a 20 gallon long tank setting empty for a few months now that I have kept it at my grandmothers house because we didn’t have any extra room with all the new baby stuff. While we were there visiting so she could see our new baby, I asked my girlfriend if I could bring the tank home finally and to my surprise she actually approved! So without hesitation I ran down the stairs, grabbed the tank and hauled it carefully to car and buckled it into the front seat. I was planning on buying the things I will be needing for this journey one piece at a time so here is where you guys and gals come in! My first thought on filtration would have been an aquaclear 70. However I have recently been told that it’s possible to run a 20 gallon on a Chaeto reactor. If anyone can give any insight on exactly what filtration I should have please feel free to jump in! I’m new to saltwater which means this will be a slow learning experience for me. I want to be as informed as possible! Right now stocking is only going to be 2 snowflake clownfish, a cleaner shrimp and some cleaner snails only, slowly working my way into a nano reef tank. I do not intend on adding other fish later. Also can you all help me learn the new salty terms you use and the abbreviations using () in your responses so I can learn those also! Lol thanks!
