Hey guys! I noticed that nobody's posted here for a while but I'll give this a shot anyway. So it's been a while since I've been on Terraforums; a move down south to Georgia and a job change and all sort of whisked me away for a while from some of the pleasantries of life...But good news!! Yesterday a friend of mine gave me this big old 80+ gallon tank that was sitting in the back of the warehouse where he works. I loaded it up into a van and brought it home and to my surprise I discover that it is a complete saltwater tank setup, complete with sump tank, protein skimmer, etc!!!!! SUPER EXCITED! But also mostly clueless as to the finer points of how marine tanks are meant to be set up and run. I did a research marathon last night (and ended up sleeping through my alarm and almost arriving late to work, but that's another story...) and figured out what I think are most of the basic first steps to getting my new tank up and running. So far I've got the tank full of RO water (still needs the salt) and I'm looking now for some live rock and discovered that's it's much more expensive than I imagined. Anybody got some to spare?So once that and the sand get installed, I understand I run the tank without light until ammonia content is down to zero....and that's about as far as I got. Can anyone point me in the right direction or show me something I can read that'll help me along with this project? I gotta say I am super excited to have saved a ton of money on the setup, but I confess I am still on a pretty tight budget, so as regards purchases I will always need the "budget option". THANKS GUYS!
