Thanks to this great forum, I've had allot of help on my 40G Breeder FW
tank set up, which is now up and running for 4 months, built the stand myself, and designed the whole tank myself, LED
lighting etc, see here: 40G Breeder , Volcano's, LED Lights, Moon Lighting, DYI Stand !
I love my FW
tank set up, and was wondering whats the cost of a SW
tank set up, for a novice like myself? As you can see, I spent money on my 40G breeder tanks, using two LED
lighting, Fuval 406 Canister filter etc
I like wider tanks, rather then tall and skinny, like a typical 55G tank, which I believe is only 12" wide
Is it possible to get a 75-90G , SW
tank started up with LED
lighting for say under $1,500.00 ?
I'm thinking 75G to 90G good size to start?
I also like the 45G bow tank
I believe the sump's run around $250?
Not sure what the cost of LED
lights would be, from researching, I believe they need to be Watts a pc
Acrylic tank over glass to run the sump pump etc?
I don't like loud tanks, thats the reason I did the canister filter on the FW
Whats the energy cost each month on running a Sw
Tank , with all these pumps etc running?
I believe to start would be :
Substrate = sand
chillers ? My house is 77-78 year round, is that to warm?
Thanks for your input, If a 75G or 90G is to much to start, and over whelming, I'd like to start with a 45G bow front tank maybe
