Should be here late in the week or first of next week.

To start with. Going to get about 4 pounds of aquacultured rock. Live sand. After the cycle I well get some easy corals and a clean up crew. One or two at a time. No fish.

This is going to be a very slow process. Cause I know nothing and don't want to work on the lighting on the tank. From what I have been researching soft corals well do fine with this lighting. And I have been looking at some lights for much later that I can just hang over the tank.

Bobby and I have always wanted a salt water but I just don't want to turn one of my freshwater tanks and no room for another large tank.

Some day I may convert the 60 but I am enjoying it to much like it is for now to change it.

Set up. No mods on the tank.

My plan is to go very slow and keep it simple.

10 pounds of dry rock. Three small pieces of aquaculture live rock. 5 pounds of live sand.
