Ok, as you all know... I am not the most responsible aquarist. Well not anymore! I am looking into a 125g+ tank very soon. I am going to move my 55g into this 125g+ (dont know which size I am getting yet) and then I am selling my 55g and equipment to my friend who I got into the saltwater hobby. I am very excited! So, I got my friend into the hobby, plus I will have a better home for my fish!
But the problem is, I am going need alot more stuff. This isnt going to be a reef (too hard for now). So I am wondering what I will need. I was thinking of getting a new Berlin Turbo Skimmer, and a 40g long sump, and use it as a fuge/sump. So my main filtration will be the LR
, Skimmer, and Fuge. But, I am going to also need to design this sump. So does anyone have pics of there sump/fuge so I can get an idea? I will get into more detail once I find the tank I am looking for (if its drilled or not).
Also, if its FOWLR
, is 2 VHO
bulbs OK for it? I am hoping they should be, since fish dont need strong lighting like corals. Also, how many GPH
should I be pumping? I am thinking of getting a Quite One pump that is rated for 1200gph. Plus if its drilled, I wont need to buy an overflow to match it! I also have a 250watt heater. Will I need another to put into my sump/fuge? I have a 100waat heater that I use in my tank until waterchanges, but I'd rather have what I need in there all the time.
Well, that about sums it up. I will ask some more as I think of them. I am trying to get the stuff I need to get the tank running for now. Then I will look into what I will put into my fuge, and extras like UV
sterilizers, ect. Thanks!!!
