Any thoughts or changes?
The maxi jets are ugly and arent very effective, get koralias.
That skimmer is crap, get a CPR bal pak like me, (i have one on my 37g, works great) is much better. Costs $160.
Are you planning on getting an RODI
system or using water from the lfs
? If your buying one i use the BRS 5 stage chloramine + unit, $250. You may not need a chloramine unit though, check in with your local water department for info if you have them or not.
Theres really no cutting corners in the salty side, cheap ends up broken and with a hair algea and cyano
On my most recent build (20g long) it costed me $800 just to give you an idea...
