One more question - should I just replace the sand to be safe, or can I reuse the stuff it had in it?

If I am replacing, what is a good place / type of sand?

Thanks again - I feel like I'm starting all over again!

This is how I think I'm going to set mine up, until I see if a skimmer is necessary with such a small tank and only one or two fish.

Do I need all three? Never used anything like this before. How about carbon? Chemi pure elite replaces carbon & lasts longer. it also contains GFO in the elite version so it gets rid of phosphates too.

Where can I get the media bags from?Chemi pure elite & purigen come in bags already
see my comments

What a nice Angler! Do you know if its colors will always stay that bright? They aren't venomous, are they? Thanks!

Thanks Red! You always seem to have a hold on everything!

I'm not 100% sure on the colors - I've heard they can change and will adapt their camo to match colors in your reef.

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?

The one you picked out looks pretty cool! Do you know how big they get? Thanks again!

Great info. The fish in the picture is just a google image I found, but initially another user just bought one from DD on LA and I saw one there but it sold while still in my cart!

It's called a Maroon / White Wartskin Angler or frogfish. They run about $130 when purchased at 1".

Ordered my stand today - should be here Saturday morning. Gotta love amazon prime!

Then I can really start getting it set-up.
