I was going to say also that to have a reef tank you`ll need to get rid of your triggers as they are not reef friendly.

so basically....to start my reef i jes need to get rid of the bio balls and get a better skimmer??
how should i place the lr rubble though? should i place it directly in the sump orr should i still put it on top of the grid (plexi wit lots of holes on it) so that the water still drips down to the sump? another thing...would it jes be much better if i make a refugium instead of using this wetdry with lr? can anyone give me plans for a DIY refugium using a 20g tank?

lr rubble will be most effective if fully submerged. DIY sump link but can easily be converted to a fuge.

Those are Odyssey lights which if you read the reviews are not the best. Especially the MH ones which have a nasty habit of catching on fire.

I think you'll find the photo of the Odyssea on this site rather familiar looking, as well as the "free" gifts...

http://www.aquatraders.com/index.asp...ROD&ProdID=337

And it's cheaper there too.

***Edit: Hmm, isn't that interesting. "hombby" is in San Francisco, and aquatraders.com is registered to someone in San Francisco. Small world!
