Re:looking to start a tank

Greg B

Hey, thanks Pete, there’s a lot of info there, I appreciate the time it must have taken you to type it all out, I’ll be sure to do that search, and will probably be emailing you in the near future.

I’ll be buying that book ASAP also, and I’ve started to search the local scene for fish stores, I found one just a couple of miles from me, and this place is AMAZING, I’m so glad I got lost and found it randomly B) (honestly I got lost and passed it a week or so ago and went back today when they were open). I think they will be another good asset for me, both in supplying my aquarium with food and supplies for my creatures, but also with good information. They have a site, which I’ll put here if anyone wants to do a bit of a look around to check them out (lemme know if they aren’t as good as I feel they are) or if anyone else is on here from mid-Michigan, this place looks excellent, half of the store is dedicated to aquariums, both fresh- and salt-water, have a huge tank full of just cultured choral, and even captive bred Banggai Cardinalfish which I see work well with dwarf seahorses.

Thanks for clearing up my confusion with liverock, glad you guys are here to help newbies like me, and I’ll be sure to set up my brine shrimp hatcheries soon… also, if I plan on having a well established hatchery well before I buy my seahorses, any ideas on what to do with the large amounts of excess brine? would it be useful to throw them in my main tank for my clean-up crew and bio-filter to take care of? or would that end up making me need to clean my tank way too often :S … again thx for any comments and thanks Pete for all that info… going to have to print it all off and read it often…
