Hello BCAers!

Scampi here.. I have to say, I'd not think in a million years that I'd be doing a tank journal, let alone a saltwater tank..

For years I've been handling fresh water setups; everything from Mollies to Discus to freshwater shrimps. I had downfalls of course, as a beginner there.. [I'm sorry to the fishes I lost.. :C] But I ended off with great success. C:

I figured since I managed to keep healthy discus and freshy shrimps that I would continue my tank journey into salt water. It's been a dream of mine, ever since I started fresh water to have a salt water tank. But like many people, I'm not a person of great means. In fact, I'm a stay at home mommy who loves everything she does with great passion; unfortunately passion doesn't pay much, if at all! Hahahaha. But after much saving, I managed to get together a 90 gallon saltwater setup! And it's currently cycling. C: How exciting!!

Some images of the first week:

The tank filled with water- it's a 90 gallon. Going with sumpless, HOB filter route. 2 power heads for current. 300w. heater. One t8 full spec. and one aticnic[sp?] light.

All clear!

Been nearly a week since the tank has been here. only 3-4 of cycling. the rocks are starting to get their pink back! [They were dormant from the previous owner when they had them in a tank].

See you next update!

Looks good so far! I can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm itching to jump into salt too... How long have you been keeping fish for?

I've kept fresh water fish for years. About 13 years, off and on.

It made me content, but never really truly happy.. I always lloved and cared for my fishes And inverts! But my real dream was to have a beautiful, large saltwater tank, teeming with color. It's a great start!!
