    JasonA how is your tank coming along anyway? It's been awhile since you have posted updated pictures. I was also wondering how you paid for your intial base rock, and how many lbs that was. Did you just pick it up at your local pet store?

    Well...

    Jason, I am curious as to how your tank turned out. I am considering a 55g FOWLR.

    You might want to start a new thread for this. I'd say it depends on the size of the powerheads.

    This is a great thread! I've kept marine aquaria over the years but I haven't had any up for the past 4 years or so and I'm looking to start one up (55g) soon.

    This forum has changed my mind about subscribing to an aquarium magazine!

    Peace...

    Glad this thread is still up and running. I wish I read this before I bought my live rock. I just finished setting up my tank 2 days ago and ordered live rock on Sunday. It's being shipped ground 5 days and will be here tomorrow. If the 5 day shipping isn't bad enough to kill off the live rocks, the Ammonia spike that hasn't happened yet sure will. I guess I'll just throw it in there and buy a few more pounds when the cycle is done...

    Got room for another Newbie???

    Greeting to all from Sunny Southwest Florida. I feel lucky to have found this site prior to my first SW setup. There was a poster, Logical, on here who only posted to this thread once. Residing in Florida, he claimed to be able to set-up his 35 gal Hex tank in 72 hours using only Ocean water and live sand.

    Exerpt from His thread:

    filled the tank 60% fresh ocean salt water $0.50 a gallon its cheep enough we donít mix salt here or I can drive 10 miles to the beach and get it free.

    Added 20 LB live sand (no bed rock or crushed rock) I was told not necessary.

    added 20 Lb live rock and toped off the tank with water had to add 3 gallons of bottle water to get the salinity down to 1.023.

    Ran the filter for 12 hours before I added 4 Damsels to start my tank cycling, by the way the water was mostly clear in 4 hours and very clear in 24 hours. Tested water before Damsel was added. Test results PH 8.0 Nitrites 0 Nitrates 0 Ammonia

    He only posted once and was never heard from again. I'm thinking maybe nitrates got him, lol.

    I'm not looking for a shortcut here; but, I love the idea of saving time using a natural resource I obvoulsy have in ready supply.

    Would anyone care to support/debunk this method?
