I have an extra powerhead I can give you, but I'm all the way in far north Fort Worth, so probably not worth driving over here to pick up. I don't make my own saltwater; I buy it by the jug at the store, so, I'm sorry, I can't help there. If you have live sand and live rock, you probably need to get it submerged in saltwater pretty quickly. That can be as simple as a 5-gallon bucket or tub with a powerhead until you get your tank ready. I'll go through my fish supplies and see what else I have to spare. I've sent most of it out already in anticipation of our big move, but I'll see what I can put together. If you get to Fort Worth to pick up other donations, do give me a PM. Good luck on your wife's new tank.

I am on the other side of the world from you, so can't help with anything physical.
All I can offer is a few words of wisdom.
Do not rush.
And tip toe in.

Tony compiled a list of good threads to get an idea of what is going on and what you need.
