Hey everyone! A couple of days ago, I posted a thread regarding a 55g Fowlr
Vs A 40b reef. After searching through multiple forums, I finally decided to go with a 40b reef!
Now the tank pry won't occur until July, except I may build the stand and order some parts early. (Depending on funds).
Alright so I need some help in a couple of places.
1.) Skimmer. Is it required for the 40b? It's gonna be mostly softies and lps
, maybe a few easy sps
later on. I can always get one later.
2.) Sump, AC
110, or Refugium? What should I go with? I've never run a sump or a Refugium. I can probably plumb and build one. Would it make that much of a difference to do a sump?
3.) Lighting- How many ebay panels would I need? Would one work? I may just get to Current USA orbit marine LED
. Carey has it on a hers, and she said it would work for softies and lps
, so no need for a skimmer if I just get that.
4.) Has anyone tried the Caribsea rock from amazon? Is it any good?
I'd like to thank everyone in advance.
Here is what I plan to get for supplies.
20l sump- Pending
Orbit Marine LED
1x Koralia 850 and 550.
Rock from Amazon- Pending.
Does that sound good?
