Thank you all for your help on the used tank thread. After hours of consideration I have decided I will buy the equip. new since I already have a nice 29 gal
. with a solid stand and canopy. I know I can trust myself. I know it's small but I am on the 6th floor so I will start with a 29. I will convert it from F/W to S/W(never used meds in tank)
I want to make this order from Big Al's in the next week or two. Any advice, how about the skimmer? Enough light for good growth on the rock or eventually coral? Missing anything for startup? It all comes to around $500 give or take a few.
