Well, you ashouldn't really discourage it.
You should post something somewhere.
It is very expansive, and you do need to know what you can have in it.
I've probably spent 10+ hours atleast of research alone, and from what I've done so far, all it is is alittle manual labor. Its not that hard to get things right.
For the absoltue begginer, you can buy premixed SW with a set SG, and that makes it reeeeaaaallllly easy.
Anyways, I'm looking for more SW forums, all the ones like Nano-reefer.com is bogus because no one ever answers your questions!
