Im going to look into that. Tyid pick up an aquaclear 50 for a new filter, it'll give you a lot more freedom on what media to run. powerhead looks good, heater looks good, light looks good.
If its in the budget, pick up an auto top off. As the water evaporates, the salt stays there which makes the salinity increase significantly.
Gorgeous, definitely going to look for an ATO...a screen for top and a powerheadWelcome.
Looks good, both are not mandatory but might increase your need to change water.
From a testing point of view, work towards getting all 8 major parameters in the range and with as little daily fluctuations as possible. An ATO is highly recommended to enhance the systems stability by ensuring salinity stays constant.Salinity changes, changes other parameters.
There will be a point, down the road, where your parameters will “lock in” and your waters will become noticeably different.
Become an expert water maker.
Good solid water chemistry will significantly increase your success.
This tank at three years did have a skimmer, but no sumps or fuges, cheap black boxes and a canister filter.
