Tanks for the reply indy!
go that route (in the future), but I would still like to know if anyone has ever seen a SW
tank without live rock (it seems everyone has a reef setup with LR
and coral)? Is there any kind of rock besides live or base thats recommended?
What I would like to have is a fake "reef", with a nice colorful rock (as mentioned in my other post, maybe limestone, but I dont know if there is such a thing as colorful limestone?), some fake coral and a few other decorations.
I already have a 55 gallon aquarium, stand, Rena Filstar XP2 canister filter (300 GPH
), and a 200W heater.
To that, I plan to add a CPR Bak Pak protien skimmer, and 2 Maxi-Jet 1200 Powerheads. Im hoping the equipment, along with the sand, rocks and decor wont cost much more than $300. I'm on somthing of a limited budget, so I would prefer not having to purchase LR
or BR. Would the equipment listed above be enough to sustain (happily of coarse) a FO
tank with 4 small beginner fish in it and no LR
