I've desided to take the plunge into sw
, I've had freshwater before, but I'd like to try something alittle different. However, before I go out and buy everything I do have a few questions.
1. I'm looking at 2 tanks right now, a 55 gal
and a 120 gal
, I know "bigger is better" but is 120 to big to start out with?
2. I'm leaning towards the 120, and I'm going to do a berlin style smup, is 30 gal
for the sump enough? Also, how much live rock and sand should I get for the sump, and how much lr
for the tank. Or is there and easy conversion, i.e. 1# rock for every gal
3. I plan on starting with a fo
tank and when everything has been good for a few months I'd like to move it to reef, so is it just fine to supplement the lr
, sand and skimmer in the sump with another filter to help take care of the material waste? If so, and suggestions?
....I had more questions, but I've forgotten them, I'll post them up when I remember. :}
