So after a few freshwater tanks decided I'm going to try a reef tank. Been getting some good advice from members like @Nart and @stella1979 Real excited so I decided to start the build forum early because I'm so excited and still need advice. Plan is to have the tank fully cycled and ready by October 6th. Just in case we see anything cool at reef-a-paloza So far I have bought/ordered: 30lbs of reef cleaner rock 100 watt ehiem heater 50 watt ehiem heater (for salt mixing) Colbalt mj1200 pump/power head (for salt mixing) Aquamaxx refractometer Still need to get: Inovative marine 20 gallon (unless I decide/ talk my girlfriend into the 25 although probably 20) Live sand Prime HD Buckets for mixing Need recommendations for: Test kit Salt to use Anything else that I need? Fish interested in stocking: Clown pair Goby shrimp pair Cleaner shrimp Royal grama Firefish Wrasse Blenny Know I can't stock all these listed from most wanted to least still need to research comparability. Any suggestions much appreciated though. Current plan is to get my rock in spend my time aquascaping on a mock up. Thinking about an arch of sorts. Get my rock glued together then put in a bin to start cycling. Get live sand and tank beginning of September set up sand and rock continue to check cycle. October start andding corals and live stock ! Anything I missed that I should be doing? Thinking about possibling adding a chaeto reactor in one of the chambers in the back. Any advice on how to do this?
