Hey folks! The wife found a great deal on craigslist and after a little bargaining, I get a 100G frag (48x48x12) tank with stand (for $200) and she gets to set up a 55G Discus tank.
I would like suggestions on sump size. We have quite a few empty tanks, but they are all 20G or less except for one that won't fit the stand. Would it even be worth it to run a 20G sump on it knowing that it will limit the skimmer dimensions and refugium potential?
Lighting.... I'm thinking 1x250 MH
pendant or 6-8 T5s. The heat is a concern with the MH
, but we can get a used one in our local club cheaper than we can get the T5 setup. Thoughts? Recommended fixtures?
This is going to serve mostly as a growout tank for corals intended to go into our reef tanks in progress, but I was thinking of adding a damsel or two for pest consumption and a decent cleanup crew. Suggestions?
