Chemipure elite is cardon and gfo
. You don't need phosguard unless you have high phoshates. Other wise that is what the gfo
is for. You dont really need a skimmer if you keep up on your water changes. I don't think the media basket media rack is worth the money. It breaks the rules of water. I would set it up like convict stated. Just use the extra room for more chaeto. Did I see 2 heaters? I would just use one.
As far as the lights, sounds like a bad ballast. Also get silentX fans. You just need longer screws and are completly silent. Also, fans should be replaced or inspected every 6 months.
And that fish is amazing! where you find it?
