Buffy's 55 Gallon Build

5Hi again ya'll, hope you decide to follow and throw out some tidbits of info, as I can use all the info I can get.

This is a 55 gallon build, I'm thinking of FOWLR. Right now I'm putting in the sand, using my original stand from the 75 Gallon. I have some rock left over and plan to use that up too.

I can't decide whether to use my HOB Marineland Emperor 400 filter, or my fluval 405 filter....Any suggestions on this?

The 55 gallon will be in my bedroom, opposite side of the house where the ro is so I am hoping either one or the other or both would help me not to lug as much water.

I have the stock light that came with the 75 gallon that I am going to use for now. I don't plan on buying a figure for a long while, just an appropriate bulb. It only holds one T5 size bulb.

Bring your popcorn and I hope you enjoy the ride.

I have been running my 55gal. With the fluval 405 for over a year and no problems. Good psi, circulation, and surface agitation.
