Alright, we got an awesome deal that couldn't be passed up on a 120 gallon tank. Our original plans didn't include an upgrade for about a year, but - here we go.....
Our current tank is 55gal, with live sand, about 100lb of rock, 1 clown, 1 damsel, 1 watchman goby, 1 yellow tang and a cleaner shrimp. 305 Fluval filter, 10gal sump underneath with a Rio 2100 that pumps 375 gal
/hr at 4ft, 2 power heads and a maxi jet 1200 which we are using as a 1300 gal
/hr circulation pump.
The new tank is 120gal - 6ft long. We plan to use a 30gal sump and add another maxi jet.
Since we're still relatively new to saltwater and have never undertaken this before, we're looking for some advice on the best and easiest way to do this.
What is the consensus on heater size for the 120? We currently have a 300 watt. Also, what would be the recommended amount of sand?
Any other tips are GREATLY appreciated. I'm sure we'll come up with some more questions along the way. Can't wait to get it up and running to show off some pics!!
