I can confirm that the crate my ATO tank came in was well protected and well secured with staples / nails.

thanks for the replies guys, i'll have everything opened and unboxed myself. i'll just need an expert to help me set up, as for the glue part i'm not sure if it will be needed or not? so of course if there is a glue situation then i wouldn't be putting in water all that quick.

I'll help you.

Send me a PM, lets discuss what you plan on doing. This can be a scary hobby to enter, i can help you take some of that fear away.

A bit of detritus added to your aquarium would help seed it.

There's lots of misleading info out there. I've made a lot of the newbie mistakes. I'd be happy to help you avoid them.


Join 420 reefkeepers on facebook. Great group of people, and a good sounding board for you as you progress in the hobby. I am an administrator on the page, we have a general help chat, and are building a huge network of reefkeepers from all over.
