Thanks for the input people it helped alot. I have done some thinking and Im going with the sand bed and I have made some other changes.Here is what im thinking now.
1 NutraFin Test Master Lab Kit (Tests for ammonia, calcium, nitrate, phosphate, nitrite, ph
, iron, carbonate hardness, and general hardness)
1 Current USA Orbit 48" 4 x 96 Watt Power Compact Strip Light W/4 Lunar (Lights 384 watts)
3 30 lb bags of Carib Sea Aragamax Sand
3 Aquarium Systems Maxi-Jet 1200 Power Head 295 G.P.H.
1 Coralife Super Skimmer-Needle Wheel-125 Gallon
1 Tom Aquarium Digital Temperature Alert Thermometer
2 Via Aqua Titanium Heater 150 Watt
1 Instant Ocean Reef Crystals 160 Gallon Salt Mix
1 Instant Ocean Hydrometer
I plan on disstilled water and Caribbean Live Rock "uncured"40 lbs. I changed the lighting hoping to keep some higher light corals and way later an Anemone. Also changed the skimmer.Could some please tell me if I am planning correctly.Any input would be great I plan on ordering at the end of the week
Thanks Alot Bob
