    salinity a little high what do I do?

    you shouldn't add stuff to raise the pH of your top off water unless you are really trying to raise the pH in your tank. basically what you are doing is just diluting the pH up with freshwater and then adding it to the tank. if your tank's pH is fine then just add the regular untreated distilled...

    nano filtration

    not terrible advice, the hanging filter will essentially be functioning as a weak powerhead but it gives you somewhere to run carbon or other filter media if you want it. the live rock and powerhead(s) are the most important part, and though it's not completely necessary I would look into a good...

    How to clean old sand

    CaribSea Dry Aragonite Special Grade Reef Sand I really like the grain size of this sand, perfect if you want something that won't blow around under strong flow but still fine enough for sand sifters and burrowers to live in. As far as how much you need for your desired thickness, that depends...

    suggestions on a good test kit, NOT API

    I like the Red Sea test kits personally, but I also use the API ones as well. I find both to yield accurate results as long as you follow the instructions, but the Red Sea tests give results on much smaller scales so you can get a more pinpoint reading. Normally I do my regular testing with the...

    Changing from sand to crushed coral

    it sounds like you used very fine sand, you could try using a coarser grain sand like CaribSea Dry Aragonite Special Grade Reef Sand I use that sand in both my tanks and it doesn't blow around even with strong flow on the bottom, and it's still fine enough for sand sifters to enjoy
