That is a very smart idea. Some fish like Clownfish are not normally classified as jumpers, but trust me, they will.

When spending lots of money on clowns you may want to let your tank run with less expensive fish that you want for awhile before adding. If you end up losing a $20 fish you will be glad that it was nor one of your $50 fish

Got it clean late last night, alot of hard work. Next step I'll be going to pick up 40lbs of real reef rock and probably about 30lbs of sand. I order the hydor skim nano and tunze top off last night also.

Anyone have any more suggestions on fish? What should I cycle with? I'll probably won't keep. What it is tho.

And I'm starting to change my mind about lighting. I'm hearing the al sol nano is good but not strong enough to grow some hard sps.

I would recommend cycling without fish. You can use a dead shrimp or pure ammonia (remember ammonia can be harmful to humans too). When the tank can push through 2-4ppm of ammonia in twenty-four hours, the tank is cycled.

You don't recommend using dr tims or one of the other cycling formulas?

What's a good return pump to use? I wanna use all new stuff looking at the equipment that comes with the solana.

I have actually never used that product before. I know that some people really like bacteria starters, but others don't.

For my 125g aquarium, I am currently using a pump by Rio. I am pleased with it so far and would buy another one.
