So far I am going to get:
Hood/ t5ho light fixture ( does this take up a lot of your elect bill?)
Filter (what kind?)
Should I get:
What other things would I need?
Well you need the essentials(salt, refractometer, test kit) then you will need powerheads, the filter( I recommend either marineland or aquaclear) rated for about 2x your tank, then maybe a heater, depending on the temp in your house(I don't use heaters, but my temp stays constant) and a good t5ho fixture. I recommend at least 4bulbs with individual reflectors. I really like the current nova extreme pro fixtures.
Also, the food I give my clowns has always been New Life Spectrum Thera+ a 1mm pellets. They contain garlic.
