What’s up TFF?

This is going to my official journal for my 29g SW nano tank.

Here is the tank as of right now:

List of items I currently have;
  • Hydrometer
  • Salt
  • Heater
  • Filter
  • Bottled Bacteria
  • Sand
  • Powerhead
  • Filter
  • Food
——

I’m going to go ahead and setup the tank and then purchase the RO system.

Process should start tomorrow! Super exciting to finally get my fingers salty. :shout:

woooow, do you have to set up a whole system of like a sump, very accurate measurements all the time, lights, and just a lot of stuff that is bigger than the tank?
i do not know a lot about saltwater, looking forward to hearing about it

Make sure there are no power sockets near the tank. Marine tanks tend to leave a bit of salt spray that can conduct electricity and give you a zap. Coverglass help to reduce this but just monitor any plugs and wipe them down regularly if they get any salt on them.

I don’t have a sump, I will use a HOB filter. (A Seachem Tidal 35)

Not sure what you mean by measurements... like parameters? Yes, I will be testing those very often.

Lights should come in today sometime.


What fish or shrimps do you plan to keep?
I would like to keep a pair of clownfish, a shrimp (probably a scarlet skunk or some other species), and maybe a goby.

Progress will start today!! Super pumped to finally be doing something with this tank.

All I need to do is finish cleaning the filter and then I’m all set.

Mixing the sand will be interesting, as it’s my first time doing so. I’m just glad I don’t have livestock yet, because I guarantee you my salinity is going to be off... :blink:

Started!

Light came in and I’m really impressed with it so far. It has a white/green, white/blue, and all blue setting:

Mixed the water just a tad bit salty. 🤔

I’ll do a full review on the light later.

Plan is to keep going and get this baby filled up! I will add less salt next time.
