Hello everyone, Wasn't sure if there was a Introduction page but, I am Henry. I'm currently trying to start up a new hobby. I have done Freshwater setups in the past so I know about the nitrogen cycle. Ive done alot of research on SW aquariums , and I know pretty much what I want. As I continue reading the vast ocean of information, questions arise. As of right now I am planning to take this project one step at a time. I come to you guys for assistance through this long beautiful process. As the title says I am strictly limited budget wise, but I am willing to save up for the best. I figured the process of getting the water to the correct parameters will give me some time to gather everything I need. I have a pretty clear understanding of what type of equipment I need for this project, but I would like some help on deciding which equipment are the most crucial to start a SW tank. I am planning on doing a FOWLR/Corals in a 40B tank. My 40 breeder tank consist of 2x 50w Heaters 45g of salt mix water 40 lbs CaribSea Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite Aquarium Sand (roughly 1.5 inch of sand) [ After three days, My water is starting to clear up, but still not clear. Barley can see the back of the tank] 2x Airstones and 3 live rocks I want my water to be heaven for the corals and fish I want to house. I understand there will be some time of conflict with some fish and corals, but again I am willing to learn the ins and outs of this hobby. Starting with beginner corals until I learn enough about taking care of them to graduate into the more harder to keep corals. Any and all help will be appreciated and I want to thank everyone in advanced. This is going to be one crazy ride but it'll be worth it! I've looked up prices on each piece of equipment, and I really want to get this right the first time as for these pieces are not cheap. To maintain pristine water quality , I've read that my setup should include a Sump/ Refugiums , And more than adequate water flow. I suck at math ill put it out there nothing to hide, All of this GPH coming from different pieces and turning over your tank really confused the heck out of me. Protein skimmers return pumps and power heads all have to do with great water quality. So I guess my first question to start everything off is: 1.What should I focus on next giving the information provided about my tank setup as it is now? 2.Should I focus on a Sump tank first? 3.Would it be better to buy a premade sump tank from drfoster, or make one your self? 4.Lighting wont be needed until corals and fish are introduced? 5.What type of lighting will provide enough light for a 40breeder tank without frying everything? 6.Was it to early to add Live rock?( critters are all probably dead now haha ) 7.My water is still cloudy. I might have aggravated the sand when filling up the tank or it could be from the salt mix. clarification? 8. How many times do I have to turn over my tank per hour? I know theres a bunch more questions stored in my head but, those are the top questions I have as of right now. I know they will branch off into so much information. I will appreciate any piece of knowledge you guys have to offer.
