Hi Ant,

You can make this list yourself by working through the Equipment List - click on the Ceph Care button above to find this article. Make the list, being sure to follow the links - you will learn a lot doing this.

Then, if you want to run the list by us, please do.

Nancy

ok here it is. tank-56 gal. I plan to put a hood with a glass panel under it.I will also tape it with colored duct tape.My Dad owns a plumbing and heating small-buisnes. I work for him (yes it is a 12 yr old working!)and he has R/O tanks so thats where ill get my r/o water.My dad knows the owner of our LPS so i could get synthetic sea salt there.UM......I dont know what kind of PS i should get , any recomendations for a 56 gal.I am going for a canister filter. I can get that from the owner too. I go to the mall with my parents a i look at hermit crab shells so i could get some of those and boil it for 20 min.I live in ohio so it gets hot and cold variations.I guess i could get a cheap chiller or put a fan on the SUMP. BTW what is a sump? :bonk: i Will find a heater somewhere but i doubt ill need it because my room stays hot for quite a while.(i only have 1 vent!) How do i set up an air pump?I will use a regular fish light on a timer 8 hrs a day, do you think thats too much or too little?How do i set up carbon? SHeesh ive neverwrote so much ....twice :yelling:

Do you have a shop nearby you? perhaps you coudl take your list with you and check it against the real thing? The shop wont mind if they think that you might eventually buy from them

Ant you have a lot of questions, and Colins suggestion of getting a visual is a great idea. Running a Marine aqaurium is a demanding , but rewarding udertanking. :)

Have you set one up before? Perhaps it would help to know what experiences you do have to build on, instead of explaining the process from scratch.

Would love to help so please fill in the gaps.

Well atleast we have a starting point. We are you at to have no aquarium shops? That would be a huge benefit for you right now.
