Need help in Richardson

Post by rml3864 on Sat 11 Jun 2011, 11:44 am

Ok I live in Richardson (75 and Beltline area) and need some help setting up my tank. This is my first salt water tank that Im putting together and need some help. I had a guy that was suppose to help me out, but the last 3 times I asked him he backed out, so I dont really want to deal with him anymore. I have a 175 gal tank, sump, pumps, salt mix, ro/di unit, etc. I think I have just about everything to start putting water in it but just need some help doing it. So if there is anyone in the Richardson area that wants to help me out that would be great.

Why not just start posting here and let everyone help you along the way. Nothing is really hard to do and if you post your steps, with pictures, as you go there are plenty of helpful people here that could guide you through the next step. Is everything set and ready to add water or are you still needing help with the equipment set up?

I need some help setting up all the equipment. I sure I have everything, but just want to make sure I do it all right.

Well I'm sure there are plenty of people on here that can help you out if you post pics of your equipment and set up. Is it a closed loop or are you using an overflow box? I'm not a closed loop expert but I know there are people on here that are. If you absolutely need some one to come out and help you do it, you might have better luck on DFWMAS. There are probably more people closer to your area.

It has a overflow box. I started a build topic on here a while back in the build section. I think im just going to go for it and post pics when I need help. But if there is anyone that can help me out just let me know.

I am in North Richland Hills and would be glad to help, but today is not a good day for that. My tank cracked about an hour ago, just got it drained and will be going to get the replacement here soon.

I'm in north plano, I've never set up a salt tank before but would love to help if you need an extra pair of hands. My brother's in town on leave from Pearl, and the families throwing a BBQ tomorrow, but I'll be free most evenings this week. If you want help just hit me up with a PM.

North Richland Hills would be a little bit of a drive for you but if you dont mind thats cool. Just let me know when a good time is for you. I get off work at 2pm everyday and im off every Thursday and Friday.
