    Hi everyone

    Have decided to take the leap to marine after many years of tropical adventures.

    Don't know a lot but am looking forward to the learning process.

    I have a 5ft with two sumps on the sides, I am hoping to build the one side into a protein skimmer and the other as bio filtration.

    Moving into a new place at the end of the month, so cycling will only happen then.......

    Here you will find all the info you'll ever need!!
    Just a quick question,the 5ft tank that you have.Was it the same tank that you used for your fresh water fish?If so did you use any copper based meds in it??

    Alot of the "new" guys use there old fresh water tanks for marines and are unknowingly playing russian roulette because the copper compounds can leach back into your system in time.And copper is DEADLY to marines!!

    True about the copper , but to make sure , fill the tank with fresh water , lower the p.h to about 6.5 , and use seachem coppersorb,

    this could help a persone sleep better at night.
