26 Gallon Reef: Possible / Smart?
I have recently converted my tank to a saltwater tank, and, as much as I would like to increase my tank size to something 100g+, it's simply not in the cards for now. That being said, I'd really like to start a reef, and was wondering if it is advisable, and if so, how much I might need to add in hardware to do so. My current configuration is this:
Aqueon 26g (24.2" x 14.8" x 20.9")
Aquaclear 110 (500gal/min)
Coralife T5 24" (2 bulbs)
~23 lbs Live Rock
Red Bulb Anenome
I am aware that anenome's can chase corals (or so I have heard), and that hawkfish can pick on inverts (although this doesn't really bother me).
What additional hardware would I need? Is there anything I should know before I look into frags?
