Greetings from England
Well guys.I have a spare 400l or 100gal (english capacity) tank with cab.I moved out of London about 4 Years ago and now live in buitfull Devon(South West England). Im lucky to live about 1/4 mile from the beach and i want to set up my own coldwater sea envioroment.I have successfully kept many tanks of malyaeys for a number of years and want to try something a bit unsaull and a bit more challenging.I have a spare fluval 404 which should filter the tank fine(i hope).I im hoping to find out the following with all your help amounts other things.
What type of filters to use i.e Carbon , sponge e.t.c ?
Do you surgest a protein skimmer ?
What type of lighting ?
Power heads maybe ?
Do you think the lack of no tide will affect the fish ?
What should i use as feed ?
The best way to stock the tank and how often ?
Which species mix and which ones dont ?
Can anybody surgesst a good web site ?
I am doing a hell of a lot of research my self but any help would be great.
I Dont want to hurt the fish or damage the enviroment any more than we aready are and want to minimise as many mistakes as pos from all the help i get .
As my children have many friends over to visit and enjoy the tanks we already have,I just think it will be a good tank to have for my young children and there friends to add to after a succsfull rockpool hunts over the weekends with there little nets.So thay can also learn about the sea we all live around and help to preserve it a bit better than we are

Hope to hear from you all soon and thank you in advance
P.S. Sorry about my spelling was never my good point
