I'm brand new to this board, and would really appreciate any help you guys can give me. I used to have a 125G thriving reef, and had to sell it when I moved across the country.
We bought a Current Cardiff due to size constraints and presentation, and I have some questions before it comes to the house.
1) Is there an easy modification I can make to include a refugium in this tank? Or any ideas on how to add a refugium externally?
2) I want to keep some SPS
coral, but don't want the heat of MH
. I never knew anything about LED
lighting 5 years ago when I had my reef. Are there any fixtures that you recommend? in the $200 - $300 range?
3) I have seen black sand on the bottom of a Cardiff reef. Does anyone know a live sand that doesn't affect the pH? I've never used black sand but liked the way it looked.
I really appreciate the feedback, and look forward to being a part of this site.
