A little Rusty...

Ok I used to have a 50G reef thats in my avatar and gallery. Then i moved out and left it with my ex sooooo i want to get another tank going. i have my eye on a 45 gallon acrylic tank someone is selling it and the NICE stand for 100 bucks including some base rock, heater, filter with extra bio bag, temp guage, net, and test kit for $100 i cant pass it up the tank has no scratches or anything she said. SOOOO I want to do a agressive or fish only saltwater tank What all do I need? i am only slightly farmilliar with reef but no agressive. Thanks in advance.

Well it looks like you have a good start there with that tank. If you are going to have an aggressive tank you`ll really need some good filtration as they are really messy eaters. It looks like you are missing some PH`s. You`ll need a few.

When you say aggressive, what exactly are you planning to keep?

Hmm...I'm thinking that a 45 is going to be too small for those choices. Most eels will get to over 2 feet in length and will really need more room. As Mike said the Agressive fish tend to make a mess of a tank so skimmer is going to be a must have!

I'm thinking of a mated pair of Gold Striped Maroons and possibly a dwarf type lionfish, would be good. Make sure the clownfish are much bigger than the lionfish. Most other aggressive fish will need a larger tank.

Now im thinking it wouldnt be to much of a fortune and well worth making a reef with this tank. I am going to pick it up tomorrow or saturday. Here is a pic of it what do you guys think?
