Well after years of having freshwater fish of all shapes and sizes I decided to take the leap. I have not had a freshwater tank setup in years but decided with winter coming and a lot of my outside animal activities slowing down I need something to keep me busy. Was at PETCO with a buddy last night, he bought a hamster heck if I know why. But I saw a delux 10 gallon tank kit for 65 bucks...had everything I needed but...Salt mix....Hydrometer.....Crushed coral/rock substrate....and water additives. I bought everything and got the tank setup last night. I will get some pics of it up here soon. Next step is going to add Live rock and maybe a few small hermit crabs for cleaners. I have the salinity balanced out and have some PH buffer and another additive that restores biological minerals in the water. I've heard real horror storeis how saltwater shouldn't be done in anything less than a 30 gallon...but I'm going to give this a try. Doubt I will have any corals but maybe down the line I'll add a few.
