200 gallon reef plan/advice
So, somwhere in the far future (atleast a year), I'm going to be setting up a much larger tank than my current 75 G display, and I'm planning on a 200G biotope. I have a few questions for you! First off, I'm torn between Biotopes, either a red sea reef or a hawaiian Reef, which one would you do, and for what cool fish or corals?
Secondly, Whats the best tank type for one this big? (Standard, Bow, square, breeder... etc., etc.)
Thirdly, cheap tanks! I don't mind going all out on the equipment, but I don't want to pay too buch for the glass.
Fourth, assuming that I'm going to use partially base rock and partially live rock, how much would be best to split for good biodiversity?
Same question for sand.
Fifth, any cool Ideas you've seen in general and suggestions on how to cut cost without cutting corners.
Sixth, any cool DIY prejects that arent very difficult dto do? (I'm not good with my hands at all, so if it's not basic I can't do it"
