Just debating what I wanna do. I figured a hob
reactor and hob
skimmer might be enough along with 200lbs of rock.
I am interested in doing a sump for the refugium aspect though. I'm going out shopping and looking today for ideas. I have enough room finally underneath a tank too for a sump.
My first priority is the lighting since once I have that I can start my buiild. I found a 72" 4 X 96w compact flourescent fixture for really cheap. Thats not gonna be nearly enough light though is it? The t5 setup I;m looking at is the current pro with 12 bulbs. Only benefit is I can probably get the t5's on trade. But either way I would have to buy bulbs too I;m guessing.
