Re: What you might need to start your SW tank

awesome, awesome, awesome.

I especially like the real-world nature of this list, and the explanations (i.e. you might not need a filter in a small tank because...)

u rock RM!

Re: What you might need to start your SW tank

How come I can't see the text in this thread. It's only Reefing Madness' text that I can't see. I can see everyone else's. I really interested on starting my first saltwaterautolinker.com autolinking image tank.

Re: What you might need to start your SW tank

I've been away from the forum for a long time. I'm getting to that time of year when I do a marine aquarium for one month while I'm spending a few weeks down at the Kenyan coast. (My new avatar is one of the fish from last April's aquarium.)

Anyway, I was struck by the mention of "deep sand" bottom. Where can I read more about that?

Clear waters,
Joe

Re: What you might need to start your SW tank

Ron Shimek's Website...Deep Sand Beds
Lots of info out there;just search "marine DSB"
I don't think one month is long enough to get the benefit fromDSB and without extreme caution and knowledge they may cause more trouble than good.
