I'm about to acquire 2 55 gallons and a 20 gallon thru a trade on craigslist and I'm actually going to mainly focus on the 20 gallon.
Here's what I was KNOW will be part of the set up.
20 lbs. base rock
5 lbs. lives rock
filter rated for 60 gallons.
Heater, I forget exactly how many watts but it is big enough for this tank
Everything else is up in the air, this is where I need help.
Sand/crushed coral/aragonite ( I'm leaning more towards crushed coral)
I found a HOB
bio skimmer for up to I think 29 gallons online for like $50, should I get it with as much filtration as I already have?
And also lighting, I Honostly just have no idea what to get (I would like to have soft corals)
Pair of oscellaris (probly not even close to spelling that right ..) clown fish
Pair of fire fish
And then some hermits and snails, the usual lol.
HELP HELP HELP. Thanks
